Swim. Bike. Run…..Powered by the Sun. Yes, after a couple years of trying to make this happen, is going solar. We started this venture several months ago and we are about to the fun part of the project – the installation! Our new system will be 128kW and will provide 88-92% of our power. With some more conservation efforts internally I think we can find a way to cover the extra 8-12%.
The system is being installed by Technicians For Sustainability (TFS), they are a local company that rose to the top in our interview/bidding process and are most in-line with our core values. We have chosen to go with SunPower panels as they are some of the most efficient panels on the market and perform exceptionally well in the Arizona sun. There are going to be 416 of these panels spread across our roof and two parking structures. As we did with our water harvesting system last year, we will be posting progress updates to keep you in the loop.

  1. 128 kilowatts?! What was I thinking? It would take a bolt of lightening to produce that kind of power.
