We just wanted to post a quick update on our solar panel installation project at our OWC Austin facility.
The panels are currently being installed and are expected to supply no less than 32 percent of the building’s annual power consumption. Of course, this is just one more step in OWC’s ongoing environmental efforts. The project is estimated to be completed and fully operational in 1-2 weeks.
Oh, and we apologize if the sunny skies in these photos serve as a stark reminder of cold, gray winter skies in your area…
Check out below for a few more photos from the project. Article Continues…
Last week we kicked off our Black Friday/Holiday Specials by highlighting some of our great deals. But we’re not finished yet! We’ve still got a ton of items available for Cyber Monday – and best of all, there are no lines! Finish up (or get started on) your holiday shopping, and let us do the work!
Here are some of the other deals that are available right now:

Black Friday deals may be just around the corner, but there’s an even better way to get a jump-start on your holiday shopping – without waiting in any annoying lines.
We’re kicking off the giving season with OWC’s annual Holiday Specials, and this year’s bundle of deals is our best yet! And while there are too many to list here, there are a few (OK, maybe a tad more than a few) that we’d be remiss not to call out. And make sure to read to the end of this post to see how we make these deals even better – without leaving the comfort of your couch.
As you may have read last week, we here at OWC are looking to make our Austin facility more energy-efficient from the top down.
Work continues on the installation of solar panels on the roof of our downtown office building. And as you can see in the photos below, the grid is now being installed and the roof will soon be ready for the ultra-efficient panels that are expected to provide no less than 32 percent of the building’s annual power consumption.
But the solar panels are just one step in our company-wide commitment to energy conservation and environmental leadership that includes our LEED Platinum Certified headquarters in Woodstock, Ill. Be sure to bookmark the OWC Blog for updates on OWC’s green initiatives and to see the finished solar panel project. Article Continues…
You might have noticed that we here at OWC take our green initiatives pretty seriously. (Others sure have!).
From our LEED Platinum Certified headquarters to our on-site Vestas V39-500 kW wind turbine, we have made a company-wide commitment to energy conservation and environmental leadership.
And now that we’ve expanded our operation with a facility in the great city of Austin, Texas, we thought it would be the perfect opportunity to also expand our environmental efforts.
OWC’s efficient new facility sits right in downtown Austin. But because we moved into an existing facility, we weren’t able to build our efforts from the ground up like we did at our Woodstock, Ill. headquarters. But we’ve taken a new approach to that “work from the ground up” philosophy: Working from the top down.
