Outreach

Bombard is a member of Solar Electric Power Association (SEPA), the Nevada Chapter of the USGBC, Nevada Energy Star Partners, and the Nevada Chapter of the American Solar Energy Society (ASES), SolarNV. Representatives from Bombard participate regularly at these and other organization's events in an effort to educate the public and promote renewable energy.

In 2009 Bombard donated and installed a 3 kilowatt Solar PV system at the Shade Tree Shelter in Las Vegas,consisting of 14 Sharp solar photovoltaic modules. The system was installed on the roof of Noah's animal house, The Shade Tree's animal shelter. The shelter will produced about 6000 or more Kilowatts per year which will saved them up to $500 per month from their monthly average energy bill of $5,000.[2]
