Can you believe that my dad, Ward Jr., started installing solar pool heaters here in Southwest Florida over 35 years ago?
Here I am with my dad, and grandpa, in 1978 celebrating the Grand Opening of our new store in Cape Coral – at the very location we’re at today!
Back in the day, it wasn’t about ‘going green’ and ‘renewable energy’ – the gas crisis of the 70’s made solar pool heating much more attractive.
I was fortunate enough to be invited by my dad to participate in this wonderful new technology!
Solar pool heating has always been the most economically viable form of solar energy. It’s always made economic sense.
Today, 35 years later, we’ve expanded our products to include more than just solar pool heat – we also offer:
- Solar Electric Power (or as we call it, photovoltaic (PV) power)
- Solar Water Heater
- Solar Lights
- Solar Attic Fan
- Pool Automation
What’s interesting is how the use of solar energy plays a big role in our goals today relating to ‘going green’ and committing to a sustainable future.
Who knew this is where I’d be today!
