Solar Panel Installations in Parking Decks
As announced earlier this year, Emory awarded Cherry Street Energy a 20-year agreement to install 5.5. megawatts (MW) of solar generation across campus. Thus, Transportation and Parking Services is excited to announce that various parking decks have been scheduled for solar panel installations.
Which Parking Decks Will Have Solar Panels Installed First?
In the first phase of the project, solar panels will be installed in the Fishburne, Peavine North and South, 1599 Clifton Road and Emory Conference Center Hotel Parking Decks. The expected installation schedule is as follows:
Peavine North – 10/14/20 – 1/8/2021
Peavine South – 10/14/2020 – 1/8/2021
1599 Clifton – 10/14/2020 – 1/8/2021
ECCH – 10/14/20 – 1/8/21
Fishburne – 10/21/20 – 12/31/2020
How Will the Solar Panel Installation Impact Parking Access?
During the installation, the top level of that specific deck will be closed for the duration of the project. Also, the level directly below the top level will be temporarily closed while columns and beams are being installed above. Please respect the barricades, follow signage directions, and do not enter the construction site.
Please return to our website periodically for updates on the progress of the installation.
