All the solar panels at Mount Saint John have been installed and the fencing around the solar array is complete. The next phase involves the installation of the transformer and the switchgear, which will be located on the south side of the novitiate building. This involves underground trenching from the solar array, for the electrical feed from the panels to the transformer.
