In August of 2022, in collaboration with Green Energy Ohio and other Ohio Solar Installers, Third Sun Kokosing Solar installed 2 Tesla Powerwalls at the Ohio Governor’s Residence.
In 2004, a “Green Team” of Green Energy Ohio member companies and volunteers installed a solar array and battery backup system on the Carriage House at the Governor’s Residence, where the Highway Patrol post is housed. The system not only contributed power for day-to-day operations of the Patrol, it also allowed them to maintain critical security functions in the event of a power outage.
Although the system has operated as intended for almost eighteen years, advances in photovoltaic cells and battery technology guarantee greater efficiency and reliability as energy demands increase.
Green Energy Ohio is excited to announce that in August of 2022 the group completed renovation of the system in collaboration with the State of Ohio Department of Administrative Services (DAS).
This project is made possible by a $50,000 grant from the American Electric Power Foundation.
