Douglas Falkenburg founded Ely Beach Solar in 2010, offering commercial turnkey solar thermal systems with internet-based controls, monitoring and maintenance. Ely Beach’s approach focuses on precision-tuning of commercial solar hot water systems to achieve unprecedented efficiencies. Economies in heat production and capital expenditure are achieved through a standardized and optimized design and careful site selection. Target market areas include multi-unit residential, nursing homes, hospitals, hotels, car washes, laundromats, and correctional facilities in urban environments. Oil-burning displacement is a major part of the value-added proposition. Mr. Falkenburg is NABCEP and SunMaxx certified.
