In addition to their unmatched experience in the U.S. market, SunEarth is rooted in a deep sense of environmental stewardship. Since their founding in 1978, a core precept of their mission has been to actively participate in the task of reducing America’s dangerous dependence on polluting fossil fuels. SunEarth, for example, has supported the Department of Energy’s Zero Energy Homes research initiative from its inception. Through the right combination of energy efficiency, solar water heating and on-site renewable generation such as PV, architects can design homes and buildings that are comfortable, affordable and nearly emission free. Zero Energy Homes and Buildings are here today and SunEarth’s manufacturing facility in Fontana, California is a leading example.
