TSEA volunteers, Stefan Partin and Carmelo Mannino, helped ARiES Energy install solar panels at the Pink Pig in Downtown Morristown. This was the first hands-on solar installation job for both interns, and it was a great success. “It is great to get your hands dirty and get experience on the ground installing,” said Stefan, “I talk to many people that have installed panels, and it is good to say that now I have too.” Carmelo talked about his experience saying, “I’m use to doing solar behind a desk, I found installing the panels to be a great experience.” ARiES Energy, a business member of TSEA, provides solar and renewable energy services, and was founded on the principal of three “E’s” – Energy Independence, Economic Development and Environmental Stewardship.
The installation was a 11.73 kW solar photovoltaic installation on a rooftop in Historic Downtown Morristown. The project used aesthetic and innovative solar technology that was installed within the design requirements of the local Historic Zoning Commission and will add to the historic building’s complete renovation. ARiES Energy is proud to be the FIRST project finished in the TN Dept. of Environment & Conservation Clean Tennessee Energy Grant program. ARiES Energy will be holding a ribbon cutting event in Morristown on October 4th, 2012 at 9AM EST. To view more picture click here. Visit ARiES Energy at www.ariesenergy.com
