February 18, 2013 - The solar panel project at Thomas E. Creek Veterans Affairs Medical Center is scheduled for completion next month despite delays.
Construction crews started the installation of the solar panels in March. Instead of covering 570 parking spaces, as originally planned, the number increased to 721 after extra parking was added, energy engineer Sam Hagins said.
“We’re scheduled to close out the contract on the sixth of March, but that’s probably not going to happen,” he said. “... But we may have to extend it due to the snow and ice we had around the holidays. Also, two weeks ago, it got too cold and the guys just could not work, so it’s a possibility that it could be extended.”
No extra costs will be accrued because of the delay, Hagins said. read more>>>
