Memphis Woman Starts Solar Power Company

Posted By on Tue, Sep 11, 2007 at 4:00 AM

After experiencing a number of pricey utility bills, Rose Marie Holsing considered switching to solar power. But the Memphis real estate investor was unable to find a local company to help her make the switch.

So she started one.

The new Burning Daylight Energy Consultants, LLC helps clients using solar power tie into the grid to augment peak power periods, zero-net electric meters, and sell any excess power generated back to Memphis Light, Gas, & Water.

The company is also forming neighborhood co-ops, through which concerned communities can meet and set goals for reducing energy consumption. Once a co-ops forms, Burning Daylight will begin hosting regular meetings to teach neighbors how solar power can help.

"Our goal with each group is to reduce fossil fuel consumption an average of 30 percent by simple, low-cost energy conservation methods," says Holsing.
