The primary objective of this project is to determine the feasibility of installing a demonstrative solar photovoltaic system on the Community Building of the Penobscot Indian Nation in Old Town, Maine. The analysis examines several possible photovoltaic system scenarios, and presents a recommendation as to which scenario is most suitable. The results of research into possible sources of funding are also presented. In addition the group aimed at sharing knowledge of photovoltaics with the Penobscots.
