Saving with Solar

We have to start saving with solar.

There is a need to educate society in the ways of reducing our destruction of the planet. We cannot continue to dig and pump up fossil fuels to power our society. Given the fact that we reject nearly 60 percent of the energy to produce what we use is just downright reckless.

We have to start to utilize a more wholistic approach to our energy use. For example, waste heat recovery, emissions recovery and so forth.

The chart below from the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory shows how much energy is rejected in the USA. It is terrible to see how we as an advanced species to allow this much energy (aka HEAT) to be sent off into oceans, lakes and the atmosphere.

The chart clearly shows that we, based on these US figures, are not doing it correctly. Transportation and electrical generation wastes such a great deal of energy. There are obvious ways to reduce these numbers and this is what we do at Systems Solar. We look at your consumption and find ways to reduce the wasted or rejected energy in your home or business. When we consult, we can offer ways to reduce loss, reduce usage, or how to produce energy to reduce your overall costs of energy.

 

Remember, it is more than just a ‘log’ that you burn, it is also the energy required to feed the person who chopped the tree, it is also the fuel to move it and so forth!

What is in a logo?

We released our company logo a short while ago. It is simple and succinct. Not to much flash and basic black & white. Our logo says a lot more than meets the eye.

black and white: When it comes to saving our environment there is no grey area there. We must make every effort to save our ecosystem. It also represents night and day. What we deal with in our solutions.


the circle: The circle besides its mathematical meaning can also denote unity, oneness, and completion. Additionally a circle with a dot in the centre is the astronomical symbol for the sun.


the mobius strip: The mobius strip means infinity. The sun gives us an endless supply of energy. Energy to grow, to create oxygen from photosynthesis. It is an endless supply of life-giving force. The mobius also looks like a propeller, and in doing so, it denotes our work with wind turbines as part of our solar solutions.


the lightning bolt: The lightning bolt denotes the power we harness from the sun and the energy we use. It also symbolizes strength and conviction of our organization.

Bringing the Family Home under Systems Solar

Systems Solar

Over the years, and we all know this scenario, we develop different skills and talents. At a point in time, these experiences start to overlap. So I decided to bring my different skill sets back under one roof.

Solar

Solar energy was my first technical love. But way back when, no one cared or even knew the technology existed. Many designs and ideas were developed but the time was not right. At that time, we didn’t even put a name on it. Now I call it Systems Solar.

Audio

Audio engineering became my focus and after many years of training, the understanding of that audio is likely the most important sense of everyday life, I opened AXL technical for troubleshooting, technical design for professional and engineered sound and communication systems. My passion for understanding how the brain processes sound let me to study psychoacoustics. The study of how acoustics affects our perception of indoor and outdoor space. Once I understood the issues in a space, I designed and built the acoustic treatments to solve the problems.

Media and Education

Working with people was always a pleasure for me. Having had the opportunity to teach my skills as a designer, service tech, and music producer, I developed many courses. These courses brought knowledge to many students who now are working in the industry around the world. This allowed me to spend over a decade working as the ‘talent’ as a writer, an actor, and as a voice artist. Given my production skills, and my psychoacoustics background, I write scripts that consider the sounds of the words and how they will interact with the listener. Another skill set yet to be noticed. All this creative work is available at TheCrossroads.tv. Which was the name of the TV program I hosted in Istanbul. The Crossroads was produced by KS Medya in Istanbul, Turkey. KS Medya provides creative content for all forms of media.

Nature

Nature is paramount for the existence of all life. The effects of humanity are detrimental to its survival. I started Garden Designer CA to address how we interact with the environment and more specifically with noise. Interior design requires consideration for acoustics and I feel that the same is true for outdoor spaces. Why have a nuce garden when all you hear is air conditioning units and traffic.

Green Transportation

I thought long and hard about selling products. I’ve been a service provider for over twenty years now. Besides designing and building products for solar energy, I decided that we don’t need to use vehicles to do simple errands. So I worked with a electric bike manufacturer to produce a few select ebikes and an escooter. The name of the line of bikes is called Things That Go E. It’s a play on words from the knights from Monty Python. We want to bring affordable green transportation to Canada.

Summary

Now, Systems Solar is working to bring all these talents under one roof. Proper communication, respect for the environment, and efficiency in energy is our goal. To attain this goal I understand that education is just as important as the services and products I supply. We need to now get this message to the world.

We’re alive!

Just a few more weeks and we’re fully online! The business has been legally formed and we’re good to go officially as Systems Solar! 

Here’s our logo! 

The logo is comprised of three elements. The circle represents the sun. The möbius represents renewable and infinite use of the sun. Finally the lightning bolt signifies electrical power.
