One of Power HRG's leading products is "eShield", an attic insulation product, utilizing the same reflective technology that NASA built into the space suits of its astronauts. eShield protects against all three forms of heat transfer (radiant heat transfer, convection and conduction).
Power’s burgeoning success in a rebounding economy is due in large part to energy efficiency tax credits for homeowners, state and federal support for green-collar job growth and the company’s commitment to investing in a green workforce and renewable energy solutions.
