We partnered with Tiny Homes of Maine to construct out one in every of their Allagash fashions and outfit it with all of our solar applied sciences: rooftop solar panels, a warmth pump, and battery back-up. We then labored with native Maine artists Rachel Gloria Adams and Ryan Adams to customized design and paint the inside mural, built-in with hands-on actions for each children and adults.
“I thought about bringing the outdoors indoors. The sun is the central focus of the mural and you see how the sun not only energizes the solar panels but everything it touches. By using geometric forms to depict a natural environment it is as if it has been filtered by human hand or machine just like the energy systems.” —Rachel Gloria Adams
