Jim, TJ, and Isabel from Sierra Solar arrived yesterday to begin installing our long-awaited solar panels for the Mono Lake Committee’s “icehouse” office building. The panels will generate more than enough power for the building, and the extra power generated will offset a portion of the Information Center & Bookstore usage. The Committee is glad to be the second business in town to install solar panels on it’s rooftops—the Shell gas station across the street was the first. We’ll post more details soon and are very excited at this step that helps reduce our ecological footprint!
