Significance

The array is located on the west face of the mechanical bulkhead at the top of the building. altPOWER worked hand-in-hand with the design team to determine the look and placement of the array in order to integrate it into the building. In the end, altPOWER designed and fabricated the glass panels which use a darker more efficient solar cell and a dark blue back-sheet that blends into the buildings overall design. The installation took just two days.
