Fimbel Architectural Door Specialtes runs on Solar Power

In early 2010, our HQ building, which houses our main office and manufacturing facilities, was outfitted with solar panels.

Since then, we have been able to reduce our overall yearly carbon footprint by a staggering 80%, versus using power generated using fossil fuels. During the summer months, our solar grid actually generates more power than we use.

Solar Power:
An infinately Renewable Resource
Clean Energy that produces no harmful outgassing
Does not require destructive and costly drilling or mining
