at his Demonstration Solar Park
Saving energy is obviously more than a slogan or selling point for Knoxville businessman David Bolt. Sure, his family saved money when the power company had to pay them for energy, because solar panels and conservation methods created their net zero energy home. And more and more commercial and residential clients are interested in the attractive return on investment.
But there is another reason Bolt is inspired to help everyone slash those utility bills with his small company called Sustainable Future.
As a parent, Bolt is interested in not just short-term gains, but in a long-term future for his growing children and other families. “When I look at their future, look at their options, I don’t like what I’m seeing. Use of nonrenewables: they have a lot of pollution, a lot of side effects. My lake house that I recently sold was near the Kingston ash spill and to see those signs that say ‘don’t eat the fish,’ that’s not being responsible. (it’s about)…taking responsibility for our actions.”
