The completion of the Solar Energy System at our Arcata Café (2013)

Dennis and Ben at the jobs completion...

Our new solar energy system was very much a community effort from start to finish. We gained a lot of insight from Kokatat, Campus Center for Appropriate Technology (CCAT), and Ben from Scurfield Solar and Heating. They directed us toward many incentives and grant opportunities to help offset the installation, including a USDA grant through the The Rural Energy for America Program (REAP). Our Solar Energy System uses the latest photovoltaic micro-inverter technology and system monitoring to help offset our bakery and café's energy consumption.

The community will be able to monitor the solar energy system from a digital monitor in our solarium. Come by check it out, or if you have more questions, please email
