Solar electric solutions provider Sharp and Namaste Solar Electric are collaborating to supply solar power to Colorado's Nyland neighborhood. Namaste Solar has announced that it will install 23 of Sharp's OnEnergy solar systems in the community by the end of 2007.

Sharp’s OnEnergy solar electric system blends into existing building designs. It uses a simplified, flexible mounting system to make installation faster, easier and more cost-effective, the company said.

Ron Kenedi, vice president of Sharp Solar Energy Solutions Group, said: The Nyland community’s commitment to solar demonstrates true environmental stewardship that can be emulated by communities across the country.

This commitment to solar is great for the Nyland community, great for the environment, and great for the state of Colorado. By harvesting Colorado’s abundant sunlight and adding solar power to their homes and common buildings, Nyland residents are realizing tremendous savings on their utility bills, while staying true to their values.
