Our train station turned garden center is steeped in history. It's hard to believe that the iconic blue and white canopy that runs along the train tracks was once used to cover travelers from the elements. Today, that canopy supports the biggest sustainability initiative Logan's has made in it's over 50 years of operation. Three hundred and ninety-six 315-watt solar panels sit atop beloved canopy and produce enough electricity to power the whole building!
These panels were installed by the Raleigh rooted business Solar NOW and run 1,000 feet to produce 167.393 kWh of power. Over the course of a year that's the equivalent of offsetting 118 tons of carbon or planting 111 acres of U.S. forest.
