Carbon-Free Energy, LLC Carbon-Free Energy, LLC

Carbon-Free Energy, LLC: Carbon-Free Energy, LLC (CFE) performs system analyses of solar-electric (i.e. Photovoltaic, PV) power systems for both terrestrial and space applications. The terrestrial systems can be grid-connected or stand-alone (usually requiring an energy storage system). System analyses can be run for any location on the earth using solar energy databases that rely on both ground and satellite measurements. System sizes range from a few kilowatts to multi-megawatts. The PV panels are multi-crystalline and single crystal silicon-based because of their higher efficiency and longer lifetimes. Inverters that convert the PV DC power to AC for the grid also cover a range of sizes, frequency and phasing for each particular application.

Lucky Manufacturing Lucky Manufacturing Cycle Vault Cycle Vault

Lucky Mfg., LLC: Lucky Mfg., LLC was formed in 2004 in Auburn, AL as a manufacturing company specializing in the production of its proprietary invention, “The Vault”. The Vault from Lucky MFG, LLC provides a clear message to would-be thieves... "better pack a lunch." Utilizing solid-steel tubular construction, a composite steel or aluminum exterior shell, no exposed hinge points, a removable tongue, removable axles and a multi-point locking system, it's one tough nut to crack.

The concept of the Vault doesn't just end with it's security features. It is also a well-designed transport vehicle for your equipment. (the term trailer doesn't do it justice) quickly insert the tongue, bolt up the axle arms and you're on your way. Loading and unloading is made simple by a hydraulic system to raise or lower the Vault into position. Casters are provided to add mobility for garage placement and feet are included to ground the Vault rendering it immobile. The Vault is two equipment accessories in one... portable protection. The Vault from Lucky MFG — a great idea.
