Resilience Hub Projects
Chosen as the lead installer of a solar micro-grid solution provider for the New Lenox Center Resilience Hub, the City of Detroit's first climate resilience hub. The new structure, which was opened in October 2023, is a 8,116-square-foot facility built outside of the flood plain and will function as a community space as well as a sustainable resilience hub during emergencies. The building will be powered by roughly 70 kW of solar, which will be connected with an industrial battery and generator to provide backup power during grid interruptions. Indoor youth sports, community activities, classrooms, and quiet learning spaces are all
available at the center.
Lenox Center Resilience Hub- 67.5 kW
Bridging Communities- 20 kW
Congress of Communities-7 kW
Bridging Communities and Congress of Communities were equipped with solar energy panels— an investment that will save non-profits an estimated $160,000 in the next 20 years. And, equally important, the next time power outages sweep Detroit, neither organization will miss a beat.
Dirul Energy Station - 5 kW
A grid power station retrofitted from a 40ft Shipping container that issued to power the 7.5 acre D-Town Urban Farm. System was designed and fitted with 3kW of solar and a state of the art Lithium Iron Phosphate battery system.
Avalon Village Stem Lab
The Lab is a 40ft shipping container that was retrofitted with solar and is an off-grid self contained energy system that was converted into a classroom. The STEM lab will introduce inner city youth of Highland Park MI to the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics disciplines that they otherwise may not gain hands on access with.
North CorkTown Commons
This project has provided solar energy to park lights and outlets that will allow the community to fulfill the vision of the Commons which is to provide a space for neighbors to relax and read a book, eat at a table with a group, or gather for large outdoor events such as meetings, performances, and fitness classes.
Solar Pergola Roof - 4.5 kW
We designed, build, and installed the 4.5 kW array solar roof top for Parker Village HP off grid Cafe that is planned to be the first of its kind in the country.
Solar-Powered Internet - 10 kW
RCI and Allied Media partnered to install SOLAR-POWERED internet access points solar charge stations throughout various parks in the city of Detroit. These charge stations are accessible to the community; not only do they provide a source of power to charge phones and other mobile devices, they also provide wi-fi.
Fox Creek Artscape
Merging art and solar design together at the Fox Creek Artscape Pavillion in the beautiful Jefferson Chalmers neighborhood. We were able to show that solar lighting can be both practical and beautiful.
