A Huntsville business is taking advantage of sunlight to save some serious cash. Media Fusion, Inc. is a Huntsville business and the latest to join the North Alabama Buildings Performance Challenge and install solar panels. 

Tim McElyea, CEO, said it was a perfect fit.

"When they came out and looked and surveyed the site to see if we were suitable for this, they said it looked as if our building were made for these [solar panels,]" said McElyea. "There was no shade. We had a large, flat roof that was facing South."

The 50-kW solar panel system includes 147 panels that Media Fusion representatives say can generate 5,850 kW per month. They already take advantage of energy-savers inside the building, including LED bulbs. But now that conservation is extended outside, to the roof.

"Essentially, we pay the utility company like we always have, and the amount that we generate that's returned to the utilities is credited back to us," McElyea explained.

And it is already paying off.
