The major league baseball stadium has been undergoing an environmentally friendly makeover that includes the installation of a solar hot water system by groSolar, North America’s premier distributor, installer and integrator of solar power solutions for homes and businesses.The solar hot-water system is part of the Solar Boston program, a 2-year, $600,000 initiative to increase the city’s solar energy output 50-fold by 2015. Solar Boston will help the city respond to climate change, rising fuel price and the need for energy independence by supporting the development of clean, alternative sources of energy citywide.groSolar installed 28 Heliodyne solar hot water collectors and four 400 gallon storage tanks that will be tied to Fenway’s existing water system. The solar-heated water will supply the park and the restaurants on the lower levels of Fenway, and is expected to reduce the park’s annual carbon dioxide emissions by roughly 18 tons.”We are honored to assist Fenway and the City of Boston in their drive and determination to ‘turn Bean Town into Green Town,’ as Mayor Menino so eloquently put it.” says groSolar’s Marketing Director, Kelli Pippin. “Solar is our forte and it’s also the cleanest, greenest weapon we know of in the fight against global warming.”About groSolargroSolar is North American’s premier distributor, installer and integrator of solar energy systems for residential and commercial installations.
