Ice Rink PV Array

October 2, 2021 - January 15, 2022

Virtual Event Virtual Event
ASES National Solar Tour

The ice rink array consists of 5.5 kilowatts of Conergy 230-watt PV modules donated to Equitable Solar Solutions by Bank of Colorado in Boulder and Snap-n-Rack rails donated by Active Energies Solar in Avon. With funding from the City of Gunnison, we purchased a new SMA Sunny Boy 6-kW inverter and paid for permitting, electrician, and a solar installer who worked with student volunteers and our faculty sponsor. Proceeds from the energy generated are transferred from the city to Gunnison Valley Regional Housing Authority who use the money to install energy efficiency upgrades in low-income households. The ability to reuse this donated equipment results in significant cost savings and provides important social benefit for Gunnison residents.
