Does it cost an arm and a leg to heat your home in the winter and cool it in the summer? It shouldn’t! It’s time to talk about upgrading to new energy efficient windows.
Do you need new windows?
If your home feels drafty, it might be time to upgrade your windows. Drafty windows let in outside air making it nearly impossible to regulate the temperature inside of your home. Leaky or drafty windows can also let in excess moisture making your home susceptible to mold, mildew, and water damage.

Lewes, DE – By committing to going green, Atlantic Millwork & Cabinetry is focused on future growth that will make the building materials supplier and distributor more competitive in the residential and commercial housing and building materials marketplace. The company strongly believes sustainability takes into account how we might live in harmony with the natural world around us, protecting it from damage and destruction. Having been an environmentally conscious company since they opened their doors in 1991, Atlantic Millwork & Cabinetry has taken major steps towards increasing commitment to being green and recently joined the Green Business Bureau (GBB), which is a national membership organization that uses an online assessment to certify green businesses.
With the aid of a grant from the Rural Energy for America Program that covered 25% of the cost, Atlantic Millwork & Cabinetry commissioned The CNC Solar Company to install a 143 kW DC system on the southern facing upper roof of their warehouse. The 550 panels system has taken the company nearly off the grid and provides nearly 95% of the electricity it takes to operate their offices and warehouse.
A small business in a small town makes big news with solar energy. Atlantic Millwork and Cabinetry is a family owned small business in Lewes specializing in windows, doors, cabinetry, decking, millwork products and more. Recently, they hosted Senator Tom Carper (D) from Delaware and Kathy Beisner, the acting director for USDA Rural development in MD/DE for a tour of their facility and their new solar energy system.

Our mission at USDA Rural Development is to help increase economic opportunity and improve the quality of life in Rural America,” said Beisner. “One way we do that is through the Rural Energy for America Program that has helped roughly 55 rural small businesses and farmers in Delaware improve their bottom line by installing renewable energy systems and energy efficient equipment. Through Federal loan guarantees and grants the program helps cut carbon emissions, creates jobs and saves families hundreds of dollars on their utility bills each year.”
Small businesses across the United States are using USDA financing in innovative ways as a means to creating more sustainable communities and the enhancement of economic competitiveness.
