ARLINGTON, Va., April 6, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- SkyBuilt Power has won an Edison Award for the Best Energy and Sustainability Product for 2011. SkyBuilt won the Silver Award in this category for its transformational renewable energy power stations. This prestigious award honors excellence in products and technological innovation.
The Award symbolizes Thomas Edison's innovative spirit. Other 2011 winners in various categories include Apple (iPod), and Coca-Cola. Hundreds of nominations were reviewed by a Steering Committee and 2,500 business executives.
David Muchow, SkyBuilt's President and CEO, noted that, "We are honored that Edison Awards has selected SkyBuilt for this prestigious award."
Bill Buck, SkyBuilt's chairman, noted that, like Edison, SkyBuilt has taken a variety of best of breed commercial products and created completely integrated, optimized and automatic power systems. They provide easy expansion, upgrading, and rapid deployment.
SkyBuilt invented the world's first rapidly deployable, combined solar and wind, power stations. SkyBuilt is a leader in pre-packaged power systems including telecommunications power, Army Ops centers and FOBS in Afghanistan, USAF (airfield power), DOE, and DHS power. Systems also are ideal for intelligence, disaster relief, health clinics, water pumping/treatment and sustainable economic development.
