TMI completed the development of West Virginia’s first solar-powered farmers market in the city of Morgantown.
TMI funded and coordinated the construction of a 3.12 kilowatt solar array and electric vehicle charging station on the Morgantown Farmers Market pavilion. The project saves the city on electricity costs and provides customers of downtown businesses the opportunity to fuel electric vehicles with the power of the sun.
The 3.12 kilowatt solar array consists of twelve American-made solar panels that produce a combined 3,600 kilowatt hours of electricity per year. The array supplies nearly half of pavilion’s the electricity demand and helps power the electric vehicle charger.
The electric vehicle charging station provides critical recharging infrastructure for owners of plug-in hybrid and all-electric vehicles.
TMI collaborated with Downstream Strategies, Mountain View Solar, and the City of Morgantown to create this high profile demonstration illustrating how solar technology can protect against rising energy costs, enhance public infrastructure, and create economic opportunity
