The solar arrays HSGS will be installing include one 170-kilowatt system on the roof of Waesche Hall and a 283.5 kW system on the roof of Roland Hall. Waesche Hall, named after Adm. Russell R. Waesche, commandant of the Coast Guard during World War II is the home of the Coast Guard Museum, library, and admissions office. Roland Hall is a multi-level building that consists of sports facilities and the Coast Guard Academy’s Athletic Hall of Fame. HSGS will begin the construction of the Coast Guard Academy’s solar arrays in the Summer of 2018.
