ENCYCLICAL LETTER LAUDATO SI’

ENCYCLICAL LETTER LAUDATO SI’

As members of a community committed to a healthy Earth we were interested to read the entire Encyclical from Pope Francis.  You might be too.  Below you will find the first two paragraphs with a link to the entire text. ENCYCLICAL LETTER LAUDATO SI’ OF THE HOLY FATHER FRANCIS ON CARE FOR OUR COMMON HOME  1. “LAUDATO SI’, mi’ Signore” – “Praise be to you, my Lord”. In the words of this beautiful canticle, Saint Francis of Assisi reminds us that our common home is like a sister with whom we share our life and a beautiful mother who opens her arms to embrace us. “Praise be to you, my Lord, through our Sister, Mother Earth, who sustains and governs us, and who produces various fruit with coloured flowers and herbs”.[1] 2. This sister now cries out to us because of the harm we have inflicted on her by our irresponsible use and abuse of the goods with which God has endowed her. We have come to see ourselves as her lords and masters, entitled to plunder her at will. The violence present in our hearts, wounded by sin, is also reflected in the symptoms of sickness evident in the soil, in the water, in the air and in all forms of life. This is why the earth herself, burdened and laid waste, is among the most abandoned and maltreated of our poor; she “groans in travail” (Rom 8:22). We have forgotten that we ourselves are dust of the earth (cf. Gen 2:7); our very bodies are made up of her elements, we breathe her air and we receive life and refreshment from her waters. Nothing in this world is indifferent to us...

Assessment of Needs and Site Surveys

With years experience in the renewable energy industry and knowledge of a wide range of products we are able to assist you in determining your needs and finding the equipment that best suits your goals.

Testing and Commissioning

We have commissioned systems in many parts of the world.  Ensuring that the system works perfectly when it is turned on makes a huge difference for your clients satisfaction and your peace of mind. To illustrate: We were invited to commission a system we designed for a town in Florida.  The commissioning was to be a town event with speeches by the mayor and several other public officials. Our engineer arrived the day before the commissioning to discover that there were many serious mistakes with the installation.  Fortunately, he was able to correct all of the problems before the star studded launch and it went smoothly resulting in a very happy town.
