Elsewhere has solar panels! Installed in February by Greensboro-based Soleil Energy Solutions the 4.8 kW solar array on the museum’s roof offsets 30% of our electricity use. The solar panels join many sustainability efforts at Elsewhere.

To celebrate our energy interdependence, Elsewhere is working with designer Elliott Montgomery and engineers from Soleil Energy Solutions to explore alternative energy through workshops, a community dinner, and a new museum commission connecting the solar panels on the roof with people on the sidewalk. Please join us this summer for electrifying potentials!

The project was funded through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) as part of a formula grant received by the City of Greensboro.
