On the meeting of 9/19/2016, committee chairmen Devin Bowersox discusses his meeting with the Provost. Devin announces the meeting was very successful, and that the Provost was very impressed with the overall idea and planning of the project so far, and gave a positive feedback to project. The Provost also proposed a few questions for the committee to discuss on the project, but the most important question was "Why would this project be the best use of college funds?". Additionally the club will be touring the Oldsmar Lockheed Martin Facility which has its own solar carport. The club will be able to meet with engineers at the facility to research the development of their solar carport. The Provost wants to reconvene after our Lockheed Martin tour to discuss our findings, the Provost also recommended to later meet with the president of the college, Dr. Law.
The Solar Carport Project is about convincing the college to construct a solar panel covered parking lot that would provide shade for both student and faculty cars. This would also be able to generate approximatly two megawatts of energy to completely sustain the campus.
The Solar Carport Project Committee is led by Committee Chairmen Devin Bowersox and is published on the website journal by Secretary and Historian Committee Chairman, Azher Hamid.
