Repost from the Asheville Times:
Deltec Homes was in the green building business long before sustainability was cool.
Founded in 1968, Deltec manufactures distinctive round homes at its Bingham Road plant. The homes are sturdy enough to withstand hurricane-force winds.
When Deltec President David Hall wanted his factory to become more energy-independent, he turned to Dave Hollister of Sundance Power Systems to install an array of electricity-producing solar panels on Deltec’s roof. Now instead of bills from Progress Energy, Hall’s company collects a monthly check from the utility.
