As a Green Business Partner, The Greater Sarasota Chamber of Commerce became one of the first Chambers in the southwest Florida region to take advantage of producing its own power, utilizing solar. Blue Sky SolarGroup, a division of Green Business Partner Blue Sky Construction Management, installed a 10,000 watt (10 kW) solar roof and awning mounted installation that supplies the Chamber building with over 10% of its power needs; reducing its carbon footprint. Solar panels are just one of the steps the Chamber has taken to become a certified Green Business Partner. The Chamber conserves energy by'using lighting controls such as occupancy sensors, setting energy-saving and stand-by settings to the minimum time intervals on electronics, and instituted a policy that all electronic devices and lighting be turned off in unoccupied rooms and offices. The Chamber also exceeds the program standards in paper waste reduction.
