Ypsilanti has another 31.5kW of solar thanks to the Ypsilanti Performance Space. They have a roof with a neat perfect pitch and facing due South, with a parking lot to the South, so no trees to spring up and shade the panels. You can see more pictures here.
Thanks to all the volunteers that helped install 52 more panels on the Fire Station. We had about dozen people and the job was over in about 2 hours. This brings the number of panels on the Fire Station up to (176+52) 228 panels. Some 285 watts and some 300 watts for a total of 65kW of power! This should make the Fire Station vary close to 100% solar powered. Pictures here.
Our second SunShot project at the Ypsilanti Department of Public Services on Forest Ave was finished in April. They had 5kW on the roof from a project we did a couple of years ago. The team disassembled that array, added 20kW of more panels, and installed a 25kW array. Pictures here and a video here.
This was another project lead by Chart House Energy where we were able to train another four local residence in how to install solar power and hired them to install solar on this roof.
This was a great project lead by Chart House Energy where we were able to train four local Parkridge residence in how to install solar power and then hired them to put solar on the roof.
This was the first of our SunShot projects.
