On April 11 (day two of the Tennessee Solar Solutions Conference), join us as we celebrate the completion of the largest single axis tracking system in Tennessee. Tour buses leave Cook Convention Center at 12:10 pm. Tour begins at 12:45 pm and Ribbon Cutting Ceremony starts at 1:30 pm. Tours of the UT Living Light House will follow.
Agricenter International is now the host site of a brand new 996 kW single-axis tracking system solar array, the largest such system in Tennessee. The system incorporates 4,160 locally manufactured Sharp Solar panels mounted on an Array Technologies tracking platform, which increases the solar production by about 20%. Please join project partners, including system owner Silicon Ranch, Agricenter International and LightWave Solar as they celebrate the commissioning of this new array with an educational tour, Green Ribbon Cutting Ceremony at 1:30pm, and a post-ceremony reception. Transportation to the site will be provided courtesy of the Memphis and Shelby County Office of Sustainability on MATA’s beautiful new hybrid electric buses. Any guests that want to drive their personal vehicles should park in Agricenter’s South parking lot. The Agricenter will provide shuttles from this parking area to the Array.
Following the 2011 Department of Energy Solar Decathlon competition, the Living Light house is back in Tennessee and on tour!
Developed and designed by students at the University of Tennessee, the Living Light house is a zero-energy residence powered by a 10.9 kW solar system. It features a smart facade, home automation and an HVAC system customized for Tennessee's climate. LightWave Solar retrofited the solar system from grid-tied to stand-alone. The battery system will power the appliances at night.
Living Light will be at Centennial Park for public tours every weekend in March. Fridays: 1:00-6:00 PM; Saturdays and Sundays: 12:00-4:00 PM. Don't miss a chance to see this house! More info here.
