Carney visits with Flexera team
Former Lt. Governor and Congress-hopeful John Carney visited Harbeson-based Flexera on Friday, September 24, to talk shop. Carney toured Flexera’s plant, and viewed a vertical-axis turbine prototype, which can be seen outside their offices.
Flexera, a residential and commercial renewable energy company, completed the first small-scale solar power plant in Delaware to sell energy wholesale to the PJM grid at Forest Reach community near Ocean View. They now have contracts with The Refuge near Fenwick Island and Cripple Creek Golf and Country Club near Dagsboro for similar projects. They also do residential and commercial installations and have grown from four to nearly 30 employees in just four years. Pictured here is Carney with Rob Isaacs and his family, who are poultry farmers from Milton who recently installed a 350-panel system to offset energy consumption for 12 of their 15 chicken houses.
