One of our favorite projects to date– The ASU Brightfield features shady parking and is equipped with 5.4kW of solar and 4 Level 2 electric vehicle chargers. The solar will produce about 30,000 vehicle miles worth of electricity a year! Designed by Brightfield Transportation Solutions (Asheville, NC), this project was about as locally sourced as they come. The chargers themselves were manufactured by GE in Mebane, NC, the canopy was manufactured of 100% USA steel in Mills River, NC, the solar racking came from a manufacturing facility in Shelby, NC, and the solar cells were made in Georgia! Not only that, but several of us here at RDA are alumni of Appalachian State’s renewable energy program and loved spending time at our Alma Mater while building this.
