“The last of 4,784 solar PV panels that will power Mill 19 at Pittsburgh’s Hazelwood Green site have been placed, marking the completion of the largest single sloped solar array in the United States. The $5 million project, completed by Scalo Solar Solutions, comprises a massive scale, covering 133,000 sq. ft across the frame of Mill 19.
The panels were installed using an innovative access platform netting material, aptly called the Spider WorkWeb, and attached to the Mill’s existing steel structure in a manner taut enough for the solar installers to walk on. The slope of the roof is 20°, and the LG solar panels will will generate over 2 MW of power.”
