Subject: Solarize Plano 2013 - Solarbration! - Final Status Update
Greetings & Solarbration!
2013 Solarize Plano Project Sun-Blazers!
Adding 100kW+ of CLEAN LOCAL electricity to Plano Neighborhoods!
This final status update is being sent to all our 2013 Solarize Plano Project enrollees. Well the time has really flown by! We finally had a chance to have a "Solarbration" gathering on Saturday, May 10, 2014 at the Plano Environmental Education Center. While not all the installed participants were able to attend, we did have a great turnout, with great discussion and feedback.
Attending participants were greeted and congratulated by Autumn Dillon from the City of Plano and Texas State House Member Representative Van Taylor. Representative Taylor also fielded numerous questions from the group, and it was great to hear his perspective on important topics related to promoting clean local energy sources in our community. And special thanks to Axium Solar. They provided some great looking t-shirts for the "Sun-Blazer" participants.
To see all the wonderful home installations, photos are available at this link - “2013 Solarize Plano Installation Photos”
The 2013 Solarize Plano Project system installations were completed in the first quarter of this year (2014). Twenty (20) Plano homeowners elected to install solar PV electric systems as part of the group purchase project. The combined total electrical capacity of the installations is 102.6kW. Overall, this brings the total number of residential installations in Plano to about 100.
What are the impacts of these most recent installations?
The presentation from the Solarbration on May 10, 2014 is also available at this link - Solarbration Presentation.
