Harry Taylor Solar Wall

The wall in yesterday's post is named after Harry Taylor who was the Director of Facilities Services at the Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre for many years until he died in a car accident in 2008. He had worked hard to make the hospital energy efficient so it is a nice tribute. The wall contains 8,400 photovoltaic cells and has a display to show how much electricity is being generated at any moment.

It appears to be a perfect memorial for someone who did so much to make the hospital energy efficient. It's especially nice to be able to determine how much electricity is actually being generated.

A perfectly fitting memorial to this forward thinker. Sad the world lost him too soon, hopeful that his ideas continue to make a difference.
