Are You Doing Your Part to Conserve Energy and Help the Environment?

Are You Doing Your Part to Conserve Energy and Help the Environment?

The movement toward green energy is picking up momentum across the country and around the world. In fact, it was the appeal of bringing a clean energy option to their community that convinced Tyler and Alicia Uebelhoer to open Buffalo Solar Solutions Inc. in 2015.

“While we are huge advocates of solar energy, we realize that solar is not an option for everyone,” said Alicia. “Some homes may not be a good fit for solar, and we certainly understand that. But, there are many other small steps that individuals and families can take to do their part to help save the planet.”

Restaurant Owners Turn to Sure Step to Keep Employees on Their Feet

Restaurant Owners Turn to Sure Step to Keep Employees on Their Feet

As you might imagine, the kitchen at your favorite local restaurant is a very busy, fast-paced environment.

As a result, slips, trips and falls due to wet and slippery conditions are among the greatest kitchen concerns. For restaurant owners, it’s an ongoing battle to keep workers healthy and safe.
