The portable classroom is just about as ubiquitous as the mobile home, so our ears perked when Toby Long, principal of Clever Homes and Toby Long Design, mentioned these first-generation, prefab, green portable classrooms. Working with the Chartwell School in Seaside, California — itself the first LEED Platinum campus in the country — Toby Long Design designed, fabricated, and installed two relocatable classroom structures on the Chartwell campus. Almost incredibly, the on-site work only took about four weeks.
The other day, Ready Solar announced the availability of this ground mount accessory for its modular Solar in a Box photovoltaic system. The ground mount is just one more accessory that fits well with Ready Solar's line of dead simple solar products. It bolts onto the integrated solar system and the tilt angle is established based on the distance between the front and back legs.
