Check out the shots of Matt on the roof of the Yack Public Hall with the solar array that was installed as part of the Virtual Power Plant (VPP), one of TRY’s signature projects to install solar and/or batteries on all the public buildings in the town. The final two installations in that project are due to occur later this year.
