Solar panels replaced @ CARLA 6/36

This afternoon a crew was able to replace a couple of solar PV panels that were smashed from
storms at CARLA 6/36's site. A storm tore a microwave dish ice shield off the tower and onto the
panels and some antennas. Both CARLA 6 and 36 have been going off line for days at a time from a
lack of enough panels to keep the power plant fully charged. At some point we hope to add some
to the array but for now were hoping it will be enough to get us through the rest of summer/fall.
BIG thanks goes out to the team that headed up there for the initial recon trip a couple of months
ago and today for the actual replacement.
