What You Need to Know

Description:

Grid Tied PV 750 kW grid-tied PV solar on custom ground mounting system.

Other Benefits:

Like UB, the strand is multidimensional and cross-disciplinary, merging teaching, learning, art, research, sustainability and community engagement into a complex and powerful resource. Groups of photovoltaic panels are mounted onto supports that stretch in three rows along Flint Road, creating a new gateway to the North Campus. The design’s logic is derived from the “strand” concept: a linear landscape formation and DNA fingerprint. Walkways run between the rows of panels, connecting the array with local roads, the Center for Tomorrow, and naturally regenerated meadows and wetland areas that the public can enjoy. Gathering spaces embedded in the project include an open-air chamber paved with recycled, concrete sidewalk slabs. The array’s tallest groupings of solar panels form a slanted roof over three outdoor “social rooms.”
