We are proud to be combining electronic security and energy conservation with our state of the art electronic solutions.
Revisit this page for updated services including energy audits, geothermal HVAC and Solar electric solutions. We can replace your energy sucking light bulbs and fluorescent fixtures to provide better lighting, reduced air conditioning costs and smaller electric bills. Your electrical rates are already subsidizing the cost of LED bulbs, so you are paying for them even if you don’t use them. They have improved vastly over the years and come in a choice of color preferences and offer long life. Outdoor bulbs are available and we can connect them to a controller that will allow you to control several bulbs individually even if they are all on the same switch.

Who produces the electricity for your home or office? You can purchase 100% Local Renewable Electricity without leaving your chair. There are several options to choose from, but as far as we know, only the Energy Co-op is a non-profit, plowing any income into educational programs. Click below and start becoming part of the solution. If you are heating with natural gas, the Energy Co-op can provide you with cleaner renewable natural gas that does not come from fracking, but from landfills and waste treatment facilities that emit methane which is being captured and purchased for you. Purchasing Renewable Natural Gas (RNG) helps to limit the demand for fracked gas. Contact us today to get started on your path towards reducing your consumption of fossil fuels!

We can help you determine whether a solar energy system makes sense for your home or business?
Drew Melman is a licensed electrician and installed one of the first photo-voltaic energy systems in the Wynnewood’s Shortridge neighborhood that has been providing clean electricity from the sun for many years. New advances in battery technology can now provide safe back-up power if the utility power goes out without the need of a fossil-fueled generator. We are working with several vendors and can get you proposals for energy audits, air sealing and insulation. We can replace older inefficient fluorescent, incandescent or halogen bulbs with new LED fixtures and/or LED replacement bulbs.
Improving the energy efficiency of your home is often the low-hanging fruit that can make a smaller renewable energy system more cost effective. Converting fossil fuel burning appliances to high-efficiency electrical ones is an important step if you want to reduce your carbon footprint, and combined with producing your own electricity from the sun will have an even greater impact.
Smart controls can save energy on lighting and HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) and make your home safer and more comfortable while saving energy. See our security system pages for information on how to integrate your security system with your lighting and HVAC systems so that you can save energy every time you arm or disarm your security system or even as you approach your home.
