The array's location on the PINC's property captures full sunlight during peak hours.

The PINC's system demonstrates self-generated solar electricity as another component of sustainability.

The institute's lush, enclosed gardens obscure the low-angled array from the street completely.

The array is ground-mounted on a sturdy, custom-built frame.

A duo of inverters, shaded from the elements, provides a constant digital readout of power generation.
