In addition to office recycling, Ballroom Marfa’s roof has a special addition, thanks to Austin-based Green Mountain Energy Company. We are powered partly by solar energy! Green Mountain Energy donated the photovoltaic solar panel system, which is mounted on our roof and visible from the street, and funded the array’s installation through its Big Texas Sun Club® program. See pictures from the solar panel installation!
Green Mountain’s Big Texas Sun Club® is a unique program in which the company’s Texas customers can choose to support solar energy installations and education in Texas by paying an additional $5 on their monthly bill. This is their 15th solar project built in Texas. With this installation, Green Mountain has been responsible for creating almost 155 kW of new solar energy capacity in Texas since 2002. The solar panels were installed by Houston-based Standard Renewable Energy.
