Radix Goes SOLAR!

In late December 2014, the team at SEED – Sustainable Engineering and Environmental Design, lllc. installed 11 solar panels onto the Radix greenhouse.  The panels were installed “landscape”, or horizontally across the south facing peak of the greenhouse. The panels will be able to collect ample sunlight in this location, creating minimal shade in the winter, and more shading in the summer (when some shading is desirable!) The panels are connected in a grid-intertie, which will send surplus electricity back to the electrical grid, lowering or eliminating our electrical bill. The panels will make a great contribution to our educational display, showing off the potential for decentralized renewable energy.  Big thanks to SEED for their all their help and guidance in the installation – and for giving us a great deal!

Any donations to help off-set installation costs are appreciated!
