energytileInscriptions on the UUAA Energy Plaza Tiles

These incriptions were selected by donors to our energy projects-- our wind turbine and solar panel installations. Some of the tiles are in a person's memory or honor, some celebrate renewable energy.

 

Note the layout of the tiles is indicated by row and column: The columns in the Energy Plaza start with A on the left (adjacent to the walkway) – and are numbered by “row”, #1 being the row closest to the parking lot. The Plaza is not rectangular – and therefore does not have all letters and numbers in each column and row -- Columns are A – Q and rows are 1 – 21.
