Solar panels were installed on a new addition as part of the rehabilitation of this historic brewery. Although visible from a parking area on the site, the panels are appropriately located on top of a compatible new addition at the back of the historic property. The installation of these panels is consistent with the historic industrial character of the site, and the project meets the Standards.
