Solar panels will be installed at the Walmart store in
Apache Junction during the overnight hours over several weeks.
The city has approved an “after-hours” work permit for 5
Star Solar, of Victor, Montana, which is installing the solar panels on the roof
of the store at 2555 W. Apache Trail.
Under the installer’s request, work will be done from Sept.
16 to Nov. 11 from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. each week, every night of the week.
The company requested the permit to minimize its workers
exposure to the hottest part of the day, especially when working on a roof that
can add heat to already high temperatures.
The installer noted it would use lighting but plans to build
temporary walls to minimize light shining around the area and plans to use
equipment that will make some noise but plans to use the noisiest equipment at
the beginning of the shift to be respectful to the surrounding neighborhood.
