Solar Powered Candle MakingSunbeam Candles runs off a 3,520W solar electric (aka photovoltaic) system built from sixteen 225W SunPower solar panels and one 3.2kW SunPower grid-tie inverter. This system ties directly to the utility grid–no batteries–and generates roughly 10 kWh per day or 3,750 kWh per year of pollution-free electricity. The panels slow Sunbeam’s electric meter on sunny days when our wax melters are running full-tilt–and stops the meter on sunny days when usage isn’t as high. What electricity we don’t make, we buy from companies producing 100% wind power. So, all the energy we use at Sunbeam Candles is renewable, guaranteed!
Soy wax contains no petroleum, pesticides or herbicides and is biodegradable and not subject to animal testing.
