system site IBEW

IBEW has successfully used the PV system as a training aid for their clients:

“ The solar array at IBEW Local 697 was one of the key components with our facility achieving LEED Gold status.  At the start of construction, the panels were installed immediately after the steel roof beams were in place so the “temporary construction power” was all powered from the array.  The system was used as a training class to certify IBEW Local 697 members and is still used as a training aid today on our “3rd floor open air classroom”. - System designer & engineer
