Yerington Paiute Tribe Commodities Building

Yerington, Nevada

In May 2011, we completed a 15 kilowatt ground-mount array at the Yerington Paiute Tribe’s Commodities Building. When viewed from the air, this array has the shape of a basket weave, representing an important element of the tribe’s culture.

This was part of a series of three symbolic arrays we installed for the Yerington tribe in 2011. The following summer, we were honored to join in the dedication ceremony for these installations, and to unveil a unique sundial designed by artist Louise Mackie. All told, these three arrays will save the tribe an estimated $14,300 every year, or over $350,000 in the next 25 years.
