SunMaxx Solar Brings Solar Education to Utah Solar Tour
American Forks, UT – September 23, 2010
Over 400 students were in attendance at the Utah Solar Tour 2010. The event, sponsored by the Utah Solar Energy Association (UtSEA) was highlighted by the opening of the new Solar Educational Park. The park was created by TRA-Mage, Inc., a manufacturer of roof-mounting systems for solar panels. The students learned how the sun can turn on electric lights, heat a shower and purify water. This is the first year that UtSEA has offered tours for K-12 students, said executive director Levi Belnap. “We wanted students to see solar energy and touch it,” Belnap said. “This was an opportunity for kids, at a young age, to come out and see this is the future. There are career paths here that will be available.”
In fact, students were able to meet Adam Farrell, CEO of SunMaxx Solar, whose entrepreneurial interests in solar power were inspired by a high school science project. Farrell demonstrated solar technology which was developed and produced by SunMaxx Solar, one of two solar companies he started. So that students could take home the experience of what they had learned, SunMaxx gave away solar powered toys for the students to enjoy after their day at the tour.
SunMaxx Solar also took the opportunity to introduce itself into the Utah solar energy markets. Recently, SunMaxx and TRA-Mage announced a long-term partnership where the latter would be providing solar mounting hardware for SunMaxx solar panels. Both companies are industry-leaders with their respective product lines and have proven success in the worldwide marketplace.
SunMaxx Solar offers complete turnkey solutions for domestic hot water and space heating in both residential and commercial applications. SunMaxx is also committed to solar thermal education and training via their EduPower Training Program, which to date has trained and certified over 1,000 solar thermal installers worldwide.
