Glass contractors open solar powered business in San Bernardino
Giroux Glass, [Las Vegas] a glazing contractor that built a glass bridge over the Grand Canyon, has opened a new fabrication facility.
Division manager Rick Lawler said Giroux's facility, which is in southeastern San Bernardino near the Santa Ana River bed, is the city's first business to be boast its own solar panels.
Lawler said the rooftop panels can generate about 20 percent of the facility's power when things are running at full tilt.
"It doesn't generate all the power, but it will pay for itself over time," he said, according to a June 8 report in The Sun.
