On May 13, 2015, our team at Major had the honor of being a part of the Colorado Energy Expo at Sports Authority Field at Mile High. This was our second year participating in this expo, and just like last year, this one was a great success. It is truly remarkable how many Colorado companies are leading the charge within the energy industry, especially clean energy and sustainability.
“As a leader in the geothermal heating and cooling industry, and long time contributor to the clean energy conversation, it is always humbling to be a part of this great event and surrounded by so many innovative companies and professionals,” said Joel Poppert, Director of Business Development at Major.
During the event, as a Factory Authorized Dealer for Reliable Controls™ and GeoElite Dealer for ClimateMaster™, we were excited to demonstrate our controls, building automation and geothermal heat pump systems to the audience. We were very busy and discussed our system with a lot of professionals, many of those from right here in our Colorado community! Those who visited our booth were informed about the importance of building automation systems in their facilities and the benefits of geothermal heating and cooling.
“It is always exciting to see people’s eyes light up when we exhibit our controls and building automation platform to a building owner. It’s one of those things that an owner may have never thought about before, or have never realized the unlimited benefits that it could have for their building. A few people stayed in our booth for over a half an hour asking questions and playing with our demo unit,” said Poppert.
After our second year sponsoring this event, it is becoming increasingly clear that energy efficiency and sustainability are becoming important issues for today’s consumers. Needless to say, we spent a lot of time helping the audience understand that Major is a one-stop shop for energy efficiency and sustainability solutions, we certainly understand that these types of projects can be complex, and need the right planning up front, expertise in design, proper installation, and final commissioning.
“I think that people are genuinely interested in clean energy solutions in their lives, whether it is for their home or their commercial building. However, there are a lot of myths about costs, effectiveness, and benefits lingering out there in the market regarding the technologies. Further, many people don’t know where to start or who to trust. This is why I think the Colorado Energy Expo is so important for Colorado, and why Major is a lifelong supporter of this event; it is a place where the community can come interact, listen, learn, and form their own consensus,” said Poppert.
Thanks to our friends at Fossil Trace Golf Course, we were able to give away a round of golf for one lucky winner, as well as a Nest Wi-Fi Thermostat.
While the event itself was successful, having it at Mile High stadium was special and added a different dynamic than last year’s event at the Colorado Convention Center. Obviously, it was a lot of fun being in the stadium where the Broncos play and looking up and seeing banners of past greats like John Elway and Terrell Davis. Also, since the event was held at the stadium, part of the west parking lots allowed for attendees to test drive all sorts of new energy-efficient cars. Unfortunately, though, we were too busy inside to take any for a spin, but there is always next year!
