Join AIA Greater Columbia & USGBC-SC Midlands Branch for lunch and a tour of the largest commercial solar panel installation (41kW) in Columbia on Friday, January 28th!  Come and hear from the installer, engineer, and building owner to find out everything you need to know about this growing source of renewable energy.

Due to the limited amount of meeting space at the Columbia Museum of Art, we will meet a few blocks away at Edens & Avant (11th floor of 1221 Main) for registration, lunch and a short program, then walk down to the Museum for the tour.  Please try and arrive between 11:30 and 11:45.  Edens & Avant occupies 3 floors of 1221 Main (9-11).  Take the elevator to floor 10, where you will be directed internally up to the 11th floor.

Free parking is available at Edens & Avant, but will need to be validated after the program. Additional metered parking is available along Main Street.

Cost: $10 for Members, $15 for Non-Members
AIA CEU will be offered for this meeting.

Please Register Online by Wednesday, January 26th.
(you can pay online or at the door)

Please direct any questions pertaining to this event to Josh Boltinhouse @ jboltinhouse@stevens-wilkinson.com or 803.576.5372.
