Tree Mob™! From Solar Power to Flower Power

September 26 @ 5:45 pm - 7:15 pm

Free

Danny Schissler, Project Coordinator, Arnold Arboretum, and Brendan Keegan, Arboretum Gardener II, Arnold Arboretum

Location: Weld Hill Solar Array, Arnold Arboretum, 1300 Centre Street, Roslindale

With a projected completion date in fall 2019, the Weld Hill Solar Project represents the Arnold Arboretum’s most ambitious sustainability initiative to date. Comprising nearly 1300 solar panels, the system is capable of producing an estimated 566,409 kWh annually (approximately 30% of the Weld Hill Research Building's total energy load). Working in tandem with the panels, a unique battery storage array reduces peak demand charges, adding additional energy savings. Join Danny Schissler to learn about the photovoltaic system and Brendan Keegan to hear about the initial stages of development of a native plant pollinator meadow within the area of the solar panels. Meet at the solar array behind the Weld Hill Building at 1300 Centre Street, Roslindale. Off-street parking is available. Find directions on our website under “Visit.”
