Community-based Solar Is Coming to Lowry

October 3, 2023 / Comments (0)


LUN is excited to announce that the community based solar installation at the Lowry Tennis Courts on Sports Boulevard is finally under construction. Contact LUN if you are interested in a tour of the site.

In November 2020, LUN was approached by Jonathon Rogers from the Denver Office of Climate Action, Sustainability and Resilience regarding a proposal for a community-based solar installation consisting of covered carport, solar panels and EV charging stations at the Lowry Tennis Courts parking lot. Also included in the proposal is a system for power sharing, new workforce training and student internship programs.   

On December 7, LUN hosted a neighborhood Zoom meeting (during Covid) to present the proposal and eliciting neighbor feedback. From the neighbor responses we received, the proposal was strongly supported.

This is a community-based project.  According to Jonathan Rogers, “We have finally gotten the team to mobilize at Lowry and get to work on the solar project. We are targeting mid-November to wrap up the majority of the work and re-open the lot. We’re also coordinating with Xcel for them to interconnect asap and, if all goes well, we can get a meter, tested, and placed in service by the end of the year. If you have questions about the project, please don’t hesitate to reach out.  If you or anyone from the community is interested in a tour at the site, I’d be happy to coordinate something.”
