Did you know that the Rhine headquarters transitioned to solar energy in 2015? “Renewable energy is just a responsible thing to implement in today’s business world.
A 98KW solar system was installed on our farm. We installed Suniva panels, a US-based company. We installed a total of 300 panels between the two buildings. We contracted with Solar Energy World out of Elkridge (Howard County) and were very pleased with the process from start to finish.

🌳 Planting a Tree 🌳
Planting a tree is fantastic for the environment and for the air around your home. There is a wide variety of trees available, and choosing one ideal for both your landscape and location is key.
Consider the weather, space needed, as well as how large the tree will grow in both height and girth.

🌳 Ways to Promote Earth Day 🌳
There are countless opportunities to partake not only today, but every day. Here is a list of popular ideas that help the environment.
♻️ Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle ♻️
Conserve Water. Take a shower that might be five minutes instead of ten! Use your sprinkler for your lawn during the early morning rather than mid-day with the sun in full force.
Consider sustainable products and services in your local community.
Use energy-efficient light bulbs. If permissible, solar energy is a great feature if you can take advantage of it for your home.
