Energy System Elements

Visually, three elements will be the focus at the Drake Landing Solar Community site. The four rows of interconnected garages with their 800 – 4'x8' solar collectors mounted on their roofs, the Energy Centre building in the north east corner of the solar community and the 2 – 4'x8' solar panels on each home. However, two of the most important elements of the energy system won’t draw attention to themselves: the homes will have numerous energy-related upgrades, and the thermal storage field will be completely buried beneath the park.
