Resilience Hub Projects
Chosen as the Prime Contractor of a solar micro-grid solution provider for the City of Detroit's first climate resiliency hub for the New Lenox Center Resilience Hub. The new building, which is slated to open in 2023, will be an 8,116-square-foot facility built outside of the flood plain and will serve as a space for the neighborhood and a sustainable resilience hub during emergencies. The building will be powered by approximately 70kW of solar integrated with an industrial battery and generator for redundant power availability during grid outages. The center will include flexible space for indoor youth sports, community events, classrooms, and quiet learning spaces. Construction has already begun with land clearing.
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.
