Abt’s ongoing green efforts are showcased in NBC Chicago’s article, “Is It Possible to Live Off the Electrical Grid?” If you are a frequent visitor to our blog, you are well aware of our efforts to make this world a little greener. Most recently we installed a Windspire in the front of our store.
Every day our 350,000 plus square foot complex is powered from the hours of 9 am- 6 pm by two engines that run on natural gas. “If you were producing more power than you were using, your meter would actually spin backwards,” says Bob Taylor, our Director of Operations. Adding energy “back into the grid” is what happens when the system generates so much power.
If you are from the Chicagoland area and are interested at all in adding solar panels to your business or home, or even adding a Windspire to create your own energy, give us a call at 847-967-8830 . For full information on our efforts visit our Going Green page.
