The licensed and insured specialists at Alpine Window Cleaning Inc. beautify windows for commercial and residential buildings with scrubbing and hot pressure-washing treatments. During roughly two hours, the staff rids glassy interiors of smudges and dust or clears exteriors of graffiti and voyeuristic spiders. For second-story tasks, cleaners mount a 24-foot ladder to combat evasive windowpane blemishes. De-gunk the most stubborn of windows with a hot pressure wash, which punishes dirt with pressurized water, a chemical solution, and demoralizing personal insults.
Flaunting aesthetic expertise and a keen eye for color composition, Art Source’s master framers help customers showcase and preserve their most precious pieces.

Although today Black Rock Solar empowers nonprofits, schools, and underserved populations by providing low-cost energy, its beginnings were less defined. In the sweltering Black Rock Desert of northern Nevada a volunteer group installed a solar array for the 2007 Burning Man event—themed that year as the Green Man. Their giant array provided more than 50,000 people with energy while they partied, but afterward, when the ash of the burning figure settled, the solar panels remained. The group donated the array to the school system of Gerlach, the tiny desert town nearby, and the seeds of Black Rock Solar were sown.
From those beginnings, Black Rock went on to build solar arrays at reduced prices for partners such as Pershing General Hospital, Pyramid Lake High School, the Fallon Paiute Shoshone Tribe, and other organizations that could benefit from low-cost energy but lacked the means to procure it. The arrays help reduce the organizations' utility bills so they can devote more resources to their central causes. Also by spreading solar power, Black Rock actively involves these organizations and the public at large in environmental stewardship, spreading clean energy and education.
