Situated between the bath house and the widely popular Sandcastle eatery, the Nokomis Solar Pavilion provides an area of respite while also generating energy. The 7kW TenK Solar Array sits atop a custom designed galvanized steel structure and frames the entry onto the beach. Beach goers and visitors alike can utilize the picnic benches and enjoy a bit of shade while marveling over the shadow patterns cast by the array. The project was funded both by the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board and an Xcel RDA grant. Go visit!
