|Englewood, FL - February 10, 2011 - Press Release -
Harrimans Inc. Solar Energy Solutions is pleased to announce that it has been selected by Balfour Beatty Construction to install the Solar Thermal System at Lemon Bay High School, Phase III, three Story Classroom Building, Gymnasium & Central Energy Plant.
Lemon Bay High School is one of three high schools in the Charlotte County school district, and Harrimans Inc. Solar Energy Solutions, has been actively participating with the district in other past projects, such Charlotte High School and Charlotte High Sports Complex, incorporating state of the art renewable energy systems to their facilities, facilitating a substantial reduction on the cost of energy consumption.
The Lemon Bay High School project consists of a large scale Solar Thermal System, featuring commercial grade roof mounted solar collectors, custom built oversized storage tanks with heat exchanger. This concept has many advantages over conventional Close Loop system since the school has minimum activity on weekends, holidays, spring break, and summer recess.
The installation will be permanently monitored by flow meters and temperature sensors, which will display electronically, on a web browser, and serve as a learning tool.
This project clearly shows how the Charlotte County Public Schools system continues leading by example, understanding the benefits of renewable energy, investing in solar infrastructure, setting the pace for students, parents and the community to be open minded regarding ways to reduce environmental impact.
