Situated between the bathhouse 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. Beachgoers 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 Nokomis Solar Pavilion was one of five photovoltaic solar power projects AWH completed for the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board made possible by the Xcel Energy Renewable Development Fund.
