Preventing Nitrification Issues –AW, California

"Our SolarBee units continue to prevent nitrification issues in our large tanks and basically prevent the problems we used to have. We continue to be happy with the machine's performance as well as SolarBee customer service."

Working To Get Additonal Machines –RP, Oregon

"Your installation team exhibited high quality professionalism. The great results from the modeling output shows the degree of mixing achieved. The performance achieved by the unit is great.

Happy With SolarBee –SA, California

We Are Tickled Pink –MO, California

"We are 'tickled pink' about the SB10000v12 unit that we just installed in our secondary WWTP. We are already seeing a big difference. They are running very well and we are seeing greater clarity."

AP500 Doing Wonders! -WR, California

"The AP500 is doing wonders. It has solved the grease problem that we were having in this wet well. We have just finished our July 4th town festivities, normally a time for heavy loading, and the AP500 performed great during this period. We are running the air compressor 24/7. The compressor is quiet and unobtrusive. We are pretty excited about the AP500 and it has exceeded our expectations."

We Are Thrilled With SolarBee –GC, Arkansas

"We are thrilled with the SolarBee! We were having smell issues this summer. We made a minor adjustment in July where we raised our intake by one foot while we lowered the SolarBee intake by one foot. As soon as this was done, the smell issues went away."

Saved $20,000 In Chemical Costs –KW, Colorado

"The SolarBees have saved our facility $200,000 in chemical costs per year since the their installation! Everything is working properly."

Smells Like Spring Instead Not Odors –CN, South Dakota

"Every spring, for several weeks, odors would roll over the whole town. So, we installed SolarBee mixers in our ponds. Now, residents can look forward to smelling spring in the air instead of the treatment plant. We don't notice anything in the spring anymore."

Clear Enough To See The Bottom –JC, Oregon

"This is the first summer in quite a few years that I have been able to take my kids swimming up here. Normally at this time of the year there are green balls of gunk floating around. The shoreline is pretty clean this summer. In the past the lake had stinking moss on the edges and now the water is clear enough that I am able to see the bottom off the dock."

60% Energy Savings –DS, Pennsylvania

"We have seen a huge energy savings; about 60%. Our electric bill has gone from $3,000 to $1,200. We are interested in purchasing more units."

Great To Work With –WK, South Dakota

"Your crew arrived early today. They were really great to work with."

Dedicated Crew –PS, Massachusetts

"Thanks to the installation crew for their dedicated work Tuesday! They were very professional, knowledgeable about the equipment and its operation, and a pleasure to work with.

Solving Our Problems –MM, Indiana

"The SolarBee's are solving our problems. Ammonia and BOD levels are good."

Great Employees –DW, New York

1.5 Years With No Algae Problems –MD, Washington

"Over the last 1.5 years there has not been a blue green algae problem, when before it was a routine problem. The city operator said that if the SolarBees didn't work, he didn't know what else to do except resign." He didn't.

We Are Happy -RR, Minnesota

"THM results for the 3rd quarter were about 50% less. We will meet the compliance standards of the Stage 2 Disinfectants/Disinfection Byproducts Rule (D/DBPR) without any major capital improvements. My thanks to all of the SolarBee staff. We are a happy customer."

The Sludge Blanket Is Gone –JW, CA

"These photos are from installation - the existing sludge blanket was about 2"- 4" thick, and solids had also settled to the bottom. Two days after the GridBee AP mixer was turned on, the sludge blanket is gone and the basin is completely mixed."

The Crew Worked Proficiently –MV, New Mexico

"It was raining like cats and dogs when your crew arrived. They worked proficiently to complete the install despite being soaked and getting stuck twice. They were real professionals."

Everything Is Working Great –TR, Kansas

"We have 11 SolarBee units installed in three ponds since 2007. Everything is working great. We have not had any BOD or TSS violations since the units were installed. We are very happy with the machines and the service, and we plan to renew the Beekeeper Service Contract. "

Never Been More Clear –DE, Alberta Canada

"We were just out at the Lake and it has not ever been more clear. We can see the bottom at the end of the dock. In the past few years it has gone a little cloudy by now. I am very excited about this. .....it is all the result of the SolarBees and the addition of the 2nd SolarBee this year has definitely had a positive impact. Thanks again for your ongoing help and support."

Impressive Crew –JL, Georgia

"There is less than one degree of temperature difference throughout the entire tank. The professionalism of the installation crews and their commitment to safety while on the job site is impressive."

Pleased With The Bees- JB, Colorado

"We are very pleased with the performance of the SolarBees up at the reservoir. It was a much easier autumn thanks to them."

Carbon Savings –RC, Colorado

"Before the SB we would see geosmin spikes in the 30-90 ng/L range during July-August, and 20-30 ng/L from Nov to Jan. We like to keep concentrations below 5 ng/L The highest measurement in 2009 was 8 ng/L with greatly reduced taste & odor issues, and we saved an estimated $50k in PAC savings compared to prior years. We attribute these reductions and carbon savings to the SolarBee, and are very happy with results so far."

Reaped Rewards –BT, California

"Taking a step forward in technology has reaped a variety of rewards for this Public Utility District. Each of these rewards came about as a result of the district's installing a SolarBee, in each of our six ponds. The estimated savings to the electrical grid will be $113,700 and 855,722 kilowatt hours per year!"

Good Customer Service –JM, Vermont

"Not only does your company have fine products, but every person we deal with at your company does a great job! Good customer service is a rarity these days, and it’s not often that you find a sales representative to drive for hours and then use his musical talents to help raise the money to pay off a product that we bought from him! I’m glad that we have all become friends in the process."

Best Purchase –RN, California

"SolarBees are one of our best purchases in the past 20 years!"

Impressed With Service Level –PW, Ohio

"The SolarBee is working great! We are impressed with the level of service; you don't just install the units and forget about them."

AP2000 Working Great –CK, California

"The AP2000 is working great the last year, the old mixer plugged all the time with aquatic weeds but the AP2000 has been running non stop and it is affecting an area more then twice of the GridBee Pond Circulator. We have had great success with the SB1250 units in our other small park ponds as well."

We wish that we could provide our residents half the support you provide to us. THANK YOU SOOOOO MUCH !"

Your System Works –KR, Arizona

"...For only one week we turned off the GS12-48v. Immediately we had to feed more chlorine because we lost the mixing. Since then it's back online we have better mixing and less chlorine feed. Offline we fed 4 to 10 p.p.d. of chlorine. Online we fed 0 to 4 p.p.d. of chlorine. Bottom line...your system works !"

Great Crew –MD, Washington

"Thanks for sending a crew to fix our problems. They did a great job. Everything has been fixed and we appreciate their efforts. They weren't going to quit until they got it done.

These units don't miss a beat! -PK, Vermont

One Of Our Best Investments –JW, New Hampshire

"As of July 2014, 8 years after installation, our unit has not cost us anything to repair or maintain. The unit has even been struck by lightning several times and came back online after being reset. The SolarBee unit has been one of the best investments our utility has ever made."

We've Cut Down On Costs –PK, Vermont

"The SolarBee unit we've had in operation since last year has allowed us to cut down on power significantly and even more importantly cut down on service costs to keep operational the surface aerators/aspirators we previous relied on completely. Your factory service and support was the main reason we went with SolarBee instead of Aeromix."
