The Bluenose Academy is serious about sustainability, which is why they have incorporated a plethora of green initiatives into the design and construciton of the school.  When they contacted Doctor Solar to find out if we could install a solar photovoltaic array on the exhaust stacks of their high efficiency wood pellet furnace, we jumped at the opportunity to be part of such a unique initiative.  Although the install was technically complex, the idea of mounting a solar PV array on part of another renewable energy system was well worth the effort!  They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and we are proud to be part of this symbolic renewable energy system that will feature in the Lunenburg skyline for decades to come.
