Project of the Year - 2016
Fort Madison, Iowa
School House Apartments, formerly Madison Middle School, is a 39-unit commercial re-purposing project selected by readers of Solar Builder Magazine as a commercial Solar Project of the Year in 2016.
Developer Todd Schneider converted the vintage 1922 school building into a 39-unit apartment complex, saving a landmark building from an Iowa landfill and creating a showcase of renewable energy.
The installation utilizes EcoFoot2 modular racking to support Renesola 300w panels for a total system size of 300 KW. The addition of solar helped the project gain funding through the state-administered federal program, Community Development Block Grant (CDBG).
