Check out photos of our progress here! By the end of January we should have our new solar system up & running at the Creamery. Many thanks to Harvey Abouelata and all the great folks at Efficient Energy of Tennessee in Powell, TN, and especially to Jeff Cannon and the amazing staff at GreenSpaces in Chattanooga for their role in making this possible!
This project was made possible in part by a solar installation grant from The Tennessee Solar Institute. The Tennessee Solar Institute is part of the Volunteer State Solar Initiative, a comprehensive solar energy and economic development program that was established using $62.5 million in American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 funding received by the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development through the Department of Energy.
