The Sunbeam - August Edition

Welcome to the August 2022 edition of The Sunbeam!

Schools either have or are about to start back up again, so you probably only have a couple more weeks of overly crowded beaches before you can actually enjoy them again. Thankfully, most of the rain has eased up lately, but that humidity remains strong. Is anyone else looking forward to the cooler autumn weather, or is it just us?

On a more exciting note, this month, Solar Power World’s list of top solar contractors came out. They covered residential, commercial, and utility installers across the United States. And, for the tenth year in a row, Cape Fear Solar Systems was named #1 in southeastern North Carolina! We are honored to received this recognition and to be named alongside the other top solar contractors in our state. You can read more about it in the article below.

We’re still aiming to move into our new solar campus next month. Within the past couple of weeks, we’ve had wiring, garage doors, and insulation all put in. We’re still waiting on a couple of offices, but things are going full steam ahead! We probably won’t be all moved in next month, but we should at least be able to start.

As always, we thank you for being a pioneer of the renewable energy movement. If you have questions or want to see more articles about certain aspects of photovoltaic systems, please let us know! Our goal is to be an industry and community leader, and we cannot do either without your support.


Sunny Regards,

The Cape Fear Solar Systems Team
