A 40 Kilowatt solar array reduces our energy consumption and a 1.02 kW demonstration array on the front lawn lets students and visitors see a real, working, PV system up close. Electricity produced is metered back to the EWEB grid, while real-time production data is sent to a touchscreen display where guests can learn about solar power, conservation and other types of renewable energy.
