Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe Museum & Visitor Center

Nixon, Nevada

The solar array at the Pyramid Lake Museum & Visitor Center points photovoltaic cells in a totally different direction: art and archeology. The array is shaped like an arrowhead, and is quite possibly the only of its kind.

The arrowhead is 18 kW and was designed by Pyramid Lake local Wakan Waci Blindman and BRS crew member Matt Deluge, along with the rest of the BRS installation crew. Their work has helped Nixon move forward on its path to energy independence, inspiring Pyramid Lake residents and out-of-towners alike to think about renewable energy in a whole new way.

The Museum is also a frequent destination for BRS field trips, giving students the opportunity to learn about renewable energy, Nevada history and Paiute culture.
