City of Cape Canaveral Partners with ESA on New Community Center Solar Project, the City’s First
February 6, 2023
Cape Canaveral, FL - The City of Cape Canaveral Community Center has recently opened its all-new building, complete with a state-of-the-art rooftop solar array provided by ESA. The 72-panel, 48 kW array is the City’s first rooftop solar initiative, and will provide clean energy to the Community Center, significantly reducing its carbon footprint and operating costs.
The new building, which has been in development for over five years, is the result of a partnership between the City of Cape Canaveral Community Center and ESA, who saw an opportunity to not only provide much-needed community resources, but also to promote the use of clean energy and sustainability. This system will help the City meet its decarbonization goals and power all its buildings and facilities with locally generated, clean energy by 2035 per the City’s 2021 Resiliency Action Plan.
"We are thrilled to unveil this new, state-of-the-art community center with our City’s first rooftop solar array," said Zachary Eichholz, City of Cape Canaveral Deputy Community and Economic Development Director and Sustainability Manager. "This project has been a true collaboration between our community and ESA, and we couldn't be more proud of the result. We hope that this center will be a beacon for both sustainability and resilience, as well as a gathering place for our community for years to come."
The 24,000 sq. ft. Community Center features a wide range of amenities, including a full size indoor basketball court, group fitness classroom, traverse wall, weight room, indoor walking track and a multipurpose meeting/banquet room. It will also offer a variety of programs and services for all ages, including sports, arts and crafts, and educational workshops.
