RONKONOMA, NY, June 19, 2019- Designs for Vision Inc., the leading manufacturer of precision optics and lighting for the medical and dental fields transitioned to solar this past February. The 525,000 plus KW solar system that covers the roof of their Bohemia based headquarters was installed by SUNation Solar Systems, a local solar company based in Long Island. The clean, green solar system will offset 65% of the building’s electric usage.
Scott Maskin, Co-Founder and CEO of SUNation personally developed this commercial solar project. SUNation is focused on the local Long Island economy. ” We set out 16 years ago with very specific goals, to help residents and business on Long Island prosper. Designs for Vision, Inc. is an example of what can be achieved when businesses partner locally.”
Designs for Vision, Inc. made the commitment in 2017 to both SUNation and solar while planning their expansion into a new 65,000 square foot headquarters. Despite almost doubling their space, through energy efficient lighting, HVAC, and solar they have actually decreased their carbon footprint and line item energy costs, which is central to the sustainable responsibility of Designs for Vision, Inc.’s culture and mission.
“SUNation provided complete services to Designs for Vision, Inc.,” said CFO Herb Schwartz. “Amidst all of the stress of a complete corporate build out and move, SUNation made the solar process effortless. We chose SUNation for several reasons, their flawless reviews, knowledge of the process and the fact that their facility is less than two miles away gave us tremendous confidence for servicing. We are already enjoying the results of our decision.”
