Some of you are following us on Facebook and may have already seen the videos of how we converted our Falcon fleet into electric vehicles. Here’s what owner, Scott Siemer, had to say in his Facebook post:
“It’s Alive – The E Falcon took it’s first roll on 10/8/2019. We got everything ironed out while it was on the rack so the test drive went off with no problem. With all the mechanical done – it is off to paint. Very excited!!
AC50 Motor with Curtis Controller.
14 – Tesla Smart Module 3wKh Batteries (42kWh total).
BMW 4-speed Transmission.
Elcon 2500 Charger with port where gas fill-up was.
With 42kWhs of energy, I am hoping for a 120-mile range. I have not pressed it yet to see what my 0-60 might be – but not expecting much more than the original. What is striking is the quiet and lightness of the vehicle! Hoping to make this my daily Solar System Inspection Vehicle!”
It was a costly and time-consuming endeavor, but it was worth every penny! Why? Well, for two big reasons. First, we adore our vintage Falcon fleet, and it has been a longtime dream to convert them into electric vehicles. Secondly, we want to demonstrate our total commitment to facilitating the transition to sustainable and renewable energy and manufacturing practices. The Falcon EV conversions, as well as our all-electric service vans. are our way of showing that we are willing to go the extra mile (both literally and figuratively) at Just Leaks.
Solar Panel Installation
The other big project also ties in with our desire to protect Mother Earth, and that is our solar roof project. Check out this image of the solar panel installation at 150 River Oaks with 385kW!
This is a project we’ve been steadily focusing on for 2 years, and the commercial building owner is a valued customer of ours. When we proved that solar panels would drastically reduce the energy cost of the building, our client grew more and more confident that installing an array of solar panels was a smart move. Plus, there is a rebate incentive that the owner couldn’t pass up!
If you are interested in solar panels for your flat commercial roof, or if you’d like to see our EV Falcon up close and personal, let us know. Just Leaks can perform a thorough roof inspection to ensure your commercial or industrial roofing system is in pristine condition, free of leaks and pooling water, and is energy efficient, too.
By the way, Autumn is the best time to schedule an appointment for us to provide roof maintenance before the Winter storms hit, so be sure to make an appointment sooner than later. We are honest and upfront about the condition of your roofing system, providing you with a report and detailed pictures.
