Renewable Energy Consulting Group was founded in 2010. Our mission is to bring renewable energy to customers and reduce the overall energy consumption that is costing home and business owners more money every day.
The price for energy will not get cheaper, it will only get more expensive. That is why our company is so important to our country’s future. With countries like China and India becoming more and more modernized as well as some African nations, their demand for the Earth’s energy will only cost U.S. companies more money. Due to the increased competition for a limited supply of fossil fuel energy that the world is consuming at a faster and faster rate.
Also all of the cheap and easy to access fossil fuel energy is gone and now traditional energy companies are having to go to drastic measures to get to the fossil fuel energy that we depend on. The oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico and numerous reports of tap water that can be set on fire due to natural gas extraction are a couple of examples of the devastating effects that getting to fossil fuel energy are causing to our environment.
The recent push for Americans to switch from traditional incandescent light bulbs to compact fluorescent light bulbs has gone a long way in reducing our country’s energy consumption, but compact fluorescent or CFL lights as they are commonly called have many problems that LED technology does not. That is why our company is not interested in selling CFL lights. We believe the future is in LED technology because LED lights have many advantages over CFL lights. CFL lights contain mercury which is extremely hazardous to the environment. LED lights contain no hazardous substances and the LED lights we sell have ROHS (Removal Of Hazardous Substances) certification. CFL lights do not tolerate temperature extremes well. LED lights tolerate temperature extremes very well. CFL lights have a life span of about half that of LED lights, and CFL lights life span is greatly affected by temperature and the total number of hours of continuous use. On average LED lights last five years if they are left on 24 hours a day, but LED lights can last as long as 12 years if year only used on average six to eight hours a day. Which is common for most home and business owners.
That is why Renewable Energy Consulting Group is so important. We are showing customers how they can reduce their energy use by simply changing something as simple as the light bulbs in a home or business and dramatically reduce their energy consumption. This creates an opportunity for home and business owners to see a light at the end of the tunnel. As a home or business reduces their energy consumption, the return on an investment by converting to renewable sources of energy such as solar and wind will be seen at a substantially faster rate.
