WALL TOWNSHIP, N.J., May 5, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- KMB Design Group today announced that it has completed the design of its 100th Solar project in the State of New Jersey. The Monmouth County Engineering and Management Services firm is one of the nation's fastest growing green energy engineering firms. Licensed in 49 states, KMB has also completed solar projects in NY, PA and NC, with pending projects in DE and MA.

Renewable energy design, including solar, is no longer the 'leap of faith' gamble it was just a few years ago. We can now prove both its cost and energy effectiveness. Another example of why we suggest and incorporate green elements into every project we do because it just makes so much sense.
