After Eco Technologies, Inc., received a contract to install solar panels at Hillsborough County, Fla.'s judicial center, company president Andrew Tanner realized a larger staff was needed to complete the project. So Tanner hired 11 additional crew members and trained them in basic solar-panel installation. The new crew members have been working at the judicial center since early July to install a196 kW photovoltaic solar energy system that is projected to generate 40 percent of the building's power and save Hillsborough County $60,000 on annual electricity costs.
