The entire project was designed, constructed and supplied by Boulder, CO based businesses. Lighthouse Solar completed the solar system installation. Lumos Solar supplied the unique frameless LSX solar modules that create the solar awning. The steel support structure and foundations were built by Wyatt Construction.
