Solar Panels at Climb Nashville

Eric Steltenpohl

At the end of the month, Climb Nashville West is taking a huge step towards reducing its carbon footprint by installing solar panels and new high-efficiency LED lighting. 

The new 50-kilowatt solar system will consist of 151 solar panels that will generate approximately 67 megawatt-hours of clean electricity each year – offsetting one-quarter of Climb Nashville’s current electricity consumption.

Alongside the installation of High-Efficiency LED lighting, the solar offset should “climb” to 50% or more. Over the next 25 years, the solar system will reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions that are equal to planting about 1000 acres of trees or taking 225 cars off the road (Source)!

After installation begins Climb Nashville West's solar system should be up and running in little more than a month. Ultimately, it is up to Metro Codes and NES but our partners at Light Wave Solar will do everything to get the system up and running as soon as possible. Here is a time frame breakdown:

  • Installation | 2 - 2.5 Weeks
  • Codes Inspection | 1 Week
  • NES Commissioning | 1-3 Weeks

The installation of the solar panels will not cause any disruptions inside the gym, but members and guests can expect to hear some noise coming from the roof as the panels are attached. Outside the gym, portions of the North Parking lot behind the building will also be closed during installation, but plenty of parking can be found around the building. Members and guests should also expect some wall closures during the installation of the high-efficiency LED lighting.

Stay tuned for more information on our installation progress and possible wall closures.
