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). The project was made possible by a $50,000 grant from the American Electric Power Foundation.

The old panels will be recycled by First Solar.
