Capacitech Energy Attracts Funding to Grow Orlando's Manufacturing Sector

This has been a pretty great week! We have:

  1. Been accepted to present at the FL Venture Forum (more info coming soon)

  2. Selected to the CADE Prize top 4 finalist

  3. Attracted funding to build our Orlando-based manufacturing facility!

We are very excited about our new partnership with Varnadore Financial. They are bringing a new level of financial experience and resources to Capacitech’s advisory team.

Their investment is a big deal for us and could not have come at a better time. We will use this funding to build out our manufacturing line in Orlando. This step up in scalability will enable us to launch several pilot programs in the renewable energy space, which has been a dream of mine since the beginning.

-Joe Sleppy | CEO

Capacitech will be partnering with RTP Systems and KCP Products to build, implement, and house the manufacturing equipment. For more information regarding this new partnership, please check out the stories published below:

Capacitech Gives Back

Capacitech Energy’s CEO, Joe Sleppy, spent time with the 4th grade students of Moss Park Elementary school on Friday, November 16th to teach the students about energy, renewables, and the importance of energy storage!

 
I often ask myself if I am making the world a better place. Hopefully my actions bring others a little bit of joy, peace, and, in this case, education.
— Joe Sleppy
 

Sleppy started off teaching the students about the different types of energy and that it can not be created or destroyed. To do this, he asked the students to hum while rubbing their hands together for as long as they could. This lead to out of breath students with warm hands demonstrating the transfer of energy.

Later, he asked the students “what happens when they are tickled?” The students responded by saying that they “laugh” or “run away.” Sleppy used this as a metaphor to explain that light “tickles” the electrons inside the solar panel converting the light into electricity!
