PGI's year-long program engaged students in learning the core concepts of green infrastructure, producing designs for an on-campus rain garden, and installing 3 River Safe rain barrels at the neighboring community center.
PGI’s “Growing Solar from the Hill” community solar network - with support from The Heinz Endowments and the CITF grant from the Redevelopment Authority of Allegheny County - spawned the installation of three solar installations for non-profits that serve disadvantaged youth and neighborhoods.
All three sites were featured on the 2015 Pittsburgh Solar Tour and include: Schenley Heights Community Development Program in the Hill District, The Kingsley Association in Larimer, and The Fab Lab at the Carnegie Science Center on Pittsburgh's Northside.
Combined the three installations bring over 22kW in PV Solar power to these non-profit organizations.
PGI's CoWorkshop offers furnished desk space rates range from $300 to $425/month.
