This past Thursday a local Burlington Cub Scout troop, Pack 555, came to RevoluSun’s offices to learn about solar power and how it can benefit the environment. It was a highly informative and fun filled event hosted by our Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Doug Pierce. Doug presented the cub scouts with many ways to save energy at their own homes, including turning the faucet off when you are brushing your teeth, and unplugging devices when you are not using them. Doug also showed the scouts how to create static electricity by having them rub balloons on their hair!
The scouts learned about new and interesting ways in which our planet is trying to go green. Doug showed them how energy efficient light bulbs have become very common place and how there are more and more electric cars coming onto our roads every day.
We also had the scouts’ parents get involved by bringing their electric bills with them so that Doug could so them his own bill. The difference being that Doug has a solar system on his house. This demonstrated to the scouts the value that solar power can create for a residential home.
The cub scouts came well prepared and asked many great questions such as what is an SREC and how do the cells in solar panels work. The scouts also had the opportunity to fill out a questionnaire detailing what they can do to make their own homes more green. This included turning the lights off when they leave a room, letting the dishwasher air dry, and closing the blinds in the summer to keep the heat out.
The scouts were given sun glasses and reusable water canteens so that they could cut back on using plastic water bottles as gifts, but the most important thing that they walked away with was a better understanding of how solar power works!
