Click to enlarge

Helios USA, located at 1207 Canal Street, produces solar modules (commonly known as solar panels), and they want to change the way we view solar power, one panel at time.

I visited the Helios site to learn more about how solar modules are created, and got a tour of the facilities, learned the names of the various machines (well, their pop-cultural names) and spoke with some of the employees as well as Brent Brucker, General Manager, and Steve Ostrenga, CEO.
