July 2020
Your destination for clean energy news.

Did you know July 25 is  National Hire a Veteran Day? At Melink Corporation, we have veterans at nearly every level of our business, and we make hiring veterans a priority year-round. Currently, we have 12 military veterans in our Melink family. Four are in leadership roles and eight serve in roles ranging from sales to field service.

We have found that our military veterans are loyal, hardworking, and have a strong sense of integrity. They bring a different perspective on life, leadership, and hard work. Hiring and employing veterans offers Melink a chance to support those that have given so much for our country. It is a mutually beneficial relationship, and our veterans’ military values easily translate to Melink’s core values. Read more about our veterans .

I think our veterans (and all of our employees for that matter!) are one of the many qualities that make Melink unique. On behalf of Melink's field service team, I would like to say we look forward to serving your energy efficiency and renewable energy needs. What can we do for your business?

Q&A: Net Metering

N et metering is a (sometimes confusing) billing incentive that offers credits to the owner when a  solar PV system  produces more electricity than consumed. Any excess power generated through solar feeds back into the utility grid, thus qualifying the owner for a “credit” on his/her electric bill. Read our Q&A to learn more.
