This power generating solar carport provides covered parking for 18 vehicles and generates over 54,000 kWh per year of electricity. Tick Tock Energy conceptualized this project and was hired to oversee the development, design, engineering, materials procurement, grant writing & administration, and provided technical support to the IBEW member electricians that provided the installation labor.

The joint venture between the National Electrical Contractors Associations (NECA) and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) provides training for electricians throughout the U.S.  Local 649 serves the Metro East St. Louis area. Tick Tock Energy has performed several solar, wind, and lighting projects for various IBEW locals in Illinois and Indiana.  If the premier organization that trains electricians hires Tick Tock Energy for their renewable energy and lighting projects, shouldn’t you?
