Screen shot 2012-05-21 at 9.13.07 AMThe Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation began an initiative last fall with Big Green Zero, a team of energy engineers and planners, called Energizing Taliesin West™. This launch is an unprecedented effort to increase the energy efficiency of Taliesin West while maintaining the architectural integrity of the campus. More after the jump...

The first project is a partnership with First Solar, Inc., one of the world's leading solar companies. They have generously donated the complete custom-designed ground-mounted solar Photovoltaic (PV) system to generate clean electricity for Taliesin West, and have recently completed installation of a 250 kW (AC) array. Power-One, a world-leader in energy efficient power solutions, has generously donated a power inverter to the project.

The new PV system will generate clean electricity for Taliesin West, helping the campus achieve its goal of becoming a net-zero energy consumer and it will also help reduce energy costs by at least one-half on an annual basis.

What: A celebration to unveil of the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation’s Solar Photovoltaic Installation.

Who: Sean Malone, CEO, Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation
Ted Meyer, Vice President, First Solar, Inc.
Bob Roth, CEO, Big Green Zero
Don Cardon, President and CEO, Arizona Commerce Authority

When: Thursday, May 24, 2012
8:30 AM - 9:30 AM

Where: Taliesin West
12621 N. Frank Lloyd Wright Boulevard
Scottsdale, AZ 85259
