Installing solar panels on the roof of a research facility. Courtesy of DOE/NREL The solar PV system that Jack Stites has installed at his construction company in Tennessee runs the length of the parking lot. Jack, president of J & S Construction, likes that clients and prospective clients can see the solar panels.

Jack is a great ambassador for clean energy, but it takes supportive policies to make these investments possible. State and federal incentives are helping Jack pay off his solar system in about two years.

Jack uses the solar array to market to clients, showing them how building smart can save money for residents and business owners. People like Jack help us spread the message of sustainable energy and better buildings across America!
