Hundreds of solar panels to be installed on Music City Center’s roof

video-screenshotMayor Karl Dean said he continues to be very excited about how the new Music City Center is being built.

“One of the special features of the building is that it is very environmentally sensitive,” Dean explained. “We are on track to be a Silver LEED certified building and of course one of the most prominent features that everyone sees in the green roof.”

On Monday, Mayor Dean climbed up to the convention center’s roof to watch a crane deliver the last crate of solar panels which will soon be installed.

A total of 845 solar panels will soon line the entire area of the roof that is shaped like a guitar.

The mayor told Nashville’s News 2 the electricity generated from the solar panels will be used to power different features of the convention center.

“It will be used for things such as escalators and fans and things like that in the building, so it will help defray some of the electrical cost of operating the building,” Dean said.

The solar power and green roof of the Music City Center will be also be a visible sign of the city’s commitment to the environment.

“To me it is a significant statement the city is making that this is important,” Dean said. “It is important to be environmentally conscience, it is important to build good buildings and this is a great building.”

It will take workers about a month to install all of the solar panels.

The first conventions and expos at the Music City Center are scheduled for June.
