Thanks to a reader for sending in the above photo with the following, “The workers removed all the barriers just a few minutes ago. (Thurs. evening) Folks are already hanging out there. Very cool!”. Apparently there is supposed to be a press conference tomorrow morning at 10am but I haven’t received official word. I’ll update tomorrow if that is the case.
Incidentally another reader sent in a very cool link with photos of other “solar trees”. You can see them here.
