Solar Renovation at Governor’s Residence

In August 2022, GEO began a complete renovation of the system in collaboration with the State of Ohio Department of Administrative Services (DAS).

Long-time GEO member companies Third Sun Kokosing Solar and Ecohouse Solar divided responsibility for designing and installing the system. Toledo Solar is donating the new Ohio-made panels. The old panels will be recycled by First Solar.
