Solar water heater panels installed!

We hope you are having a good winter! It certainly has not been a winter wonderland but it has made it much easier to get around. 

We just want to touch base and let you know that the solar water heater panels are installed! They are mounted on a wooden stand that volunteers from Johnson and Wales University built with help from our friend Fabio. The stand was constructed on a cold December Saturday but our crew toughed it out. We mounted the stand on top of the south facing hillside behind the aquaponics dome to receive the most sunlight during the day. You can check out specifications of the solar water heater panels here

We will check in again and let you know how the panels perform. Thank you again for giving us the capacity to get this job done right! We would also like to thank our many community volunteers from Johnson and Wales, Galego Court, and Pawtucket.
