Local SWFWMD District Office Undergoes Energy-Saving Project
Allen Loura knows about saving energy. As the “Master Trades Worker” at the Sarasota office of the Southwest Florida Water Management District, Mr. Loura is in the process of overseeing a complete change-over to energy-saving LED lighting for both the interior as well as the exterior of his facility on Fruitville Road. He’s also taking other steps for interior comfort and energy reduction. Recently he called Solar-X of Sarasota for a window film estimate on the problematic West, South, and East elevations. The large windows were letting an overload of heat intrusion into the offices situated around the perimeter of the building; causing a great deal of discomfort, temperature instability from one side of the building to the other, and generally unhappy occupants.
After a thorough consultation, a product was decided upon that rejects 79% of the total solar energy radiating through the windows, and a date was set for the installation. With this film choice, Solar-X was able to save them additional money with a Florida Power and Light Commercial Rebate for the work done on the western exposure at the highest applicable incentive rate; making the price even more affordable. The work went very quickly – there was no disruption of office routine – and now every occupant is much more comfortable; in fact (in Mr. Loura’s words), they are “delighted” with the application.
