While driving down the expressways and thruway, everyone notices the solar panels now generating power for sign lighting. The 2nd half of 2011 for the ACES-Energy staff will be devoted to strategic marketing and financing for municipality welcome signs. We believe this is the future to help towns reduce energy and maintenance, while promoting and embracing renewable energy. Our initial plan is to reach out to county and town governments from Erie to Oswego County, one-hour North and South of the thruway. We would like every town to have a welcome sign that has a solar powered light.
