Have you driven by the GISS lately? Look over and you will see solar panels!
Panel installation has started on the GISS gym roof. So far we have 38 panels in place, enough to generate over 9 kilowatts out of the planned 21 kW total. These panels are designed for rugged environments with minimal maintenance. Below we have Kjell Liem, Ron Watts and Will Andrews taking a breather from installing.
The SD64 school engineering team have also been hard at work installing the conduits and wiring to connect the solar array to the hydro grid: big thanks to Lane, Bud, Graham, and Tom for such great work.
In fact, so much progress has been made that we have planned the public launch for January 10th, 2015. Mark your calendars now and stay tuned for ‘the Big Switch’.
