Creative Energies Solar, our wonderful local solar installation company, is celebrating its 19 years in business with a new logo. With its office in Victor net-zero energy and many of the employees’ homes with solar panels, these folks are dedicated to what they do and truly embrace sustainability. To put it in their words: “Creative Energies is devoted to the mountain towns we work, live, and play in. We have worked with homeowners, business owners and municipalities throughout the Tetons to provide a clean source of energy that lessens our impact on the beautiful place we have chosen to call ‘home.’”
Creative Energies installs solar systems for everyone from homeowners to larger scale projects, such as the recent 1600 panel installation for the town of Jackson/Teton County Wyoming. This project, which is 564 kilowatts, is “virtually net metered”—meaning that it is not actually tied in to any of the meters on site; instead it will be used to offset a number of town and county facilities in locations where solar would not be ideal.
CE Solar is generous in the community and to those less fortunate. It has a Give Back Program: for every solar power system installed in the U.S., they donate a solar home kit to the Watt-toWatt program, which provides clean solar energy to child led homes in remote parts of the world.
Teton Valley Community Recycling and Creative Energies have had a great relationship over the years—founder Andy Tyson was a member of our board. This past winter we were happy to have their help in purchasing Holiday light Fix-it Tools; we feel fortunate to work with CE Solar and thank them for their dedication to a more sustainable Teton Valley.
