ABCO Energy, Inc. is currently working on one of the most intensive commercial and residential solar installation projects in their company’s entire duration. ABCO has determined that the work will continue into the year 2014, and they obtained a USA based fund that will provide up to $50,000,000 in funding.
Along with the major installation project, ABCO will also be installing solar projects on four different charter schools, which has been fully funded with a $1,000,000 contract. ABCO will be focusing on the installation of Photovoltaic Solar Systems, Solar Thermal Systems and the installation of LED lighting systems that help to conserve energy and make an advancement for green technology. These projects are experiencing a lot of funding and the securing of contractors, allowing them to continue far into 2014 where they will hopefully meet a successful end result.

Military Embracing Solar
Carrying fuel to comrades is perhaps one of the most dangerous missions in both Iraq and Afghanistan. Over 3,000 American soldiers have died because of these missions in just a short period of four years. This has opened the military’s eyes to our dangerous dependence on oil, and now the Marines are beginning to get behind the idea of solar power.
The Marines are beginning to use solar energy to charge their radio batteries, to power lighting systems, and power computers. This allows them to dismiss the use of noisy power generators, and they have decreased their fuel consumption from 20 gallons a day to a small number of only 2.5. Steven Anderson, a chief logistician in Iraq, believes that the military’s reliance on fuel made them extremely vulnerable to their enemies. Now they are focusing on using solar energy, which will make them more self-reliant and also contribute positively to the environment by cutting down on fuel consumption.
