IBEW Adding Dual-Axis Solar Trackers, Storage to Net Zero Detroit HQ Expansion


Michigan Solar Solutions celebrates the innovative strides toward renewable energy in our home state! We’re happy to share an announcement made by The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 58. They are expanding their Detroit headquarters to not only be larger but also smarter and more sustainable, thanks to cutting-edge solar technology.

Embracing Advanced Solar Technology

IBEW Local 58 has made a significant move towards sustainable energy by incorporating dual-axis solar trackers in their headquarters expansion. These advanced trackers are a leap forward in solar technology, offering superior efficiency by following the sun’s trajectory throughout the day. This means more energy capture and increased efficiency, setting a new standard for solar installations in urban settings.

Energy Storage: A Game-Changer

Alongside solar trackers, IBEW Local 58 is integrating a robust energy storage system. This system will store excess energy generated during peak sunlight hours, which can be used as needed. Energy storage is a critical component in modern solar power systems, offering reliability and consistency in energy supply, regardless of weather conditions. 

A Net Zero Vision

The goal for IBEW Local 58’s headquarters is not just to expand its space but to achieve a net-zero energy status. This means the building will produce as much energy as it consumes, creating a balance that is both environmentally friendly and economically beneficial. Achieving net-zero is a testament to the potential of solar power and energy storage systems in commercial spaces.

Leading by Example in Detroit

This project is helping progress the future of energy in Michigan. IBEW Local 58 is leading by example, showing businesses and organizations throughout Detroit and beyond that sustainable energy solutions are both viable and beneficial. By adopting innovative solar technologies and aiming for net-zero energy, they’re paving the way for a more sustainable urban future.
