STAUNTON, VA, Taylor and Boody Organbuilders, located at 8 Hewitt Rd., Staunton, Virginia, has switched on a solar power system installed at their manufacturing and assembly facility. The 37kW, 109-panel system is expected to produce 46,251kW of power and offset approximately 75,885 lb. of CO2 emissions annually. The company was founded in 1977, and in 1979 moved from Ohio to the Staunton area and bought an abandoned school building which had been unoccupied since the 1950’s. The company’s management had been considering solar for several years, and due to a confluence of factors, General Manager Erik Boody decided it was time to make the commitment. He chose Altenergy, Inc, to design and build the system, because of Taylor and Boody’s dedication to support local businesses and the recommendation of its co-founder George Taylor, who hired Altenergy to install a solar power system on his home. “Solar is now so affordable, and when Altenergy helped us obtain low-interest financing, that was the clincher,” Boody said. “We realized we would be crazy not to do it.”
