solar panels

At Beaver Lake Nature Center, Onondaga County is monitoring and tracking performance of the solar PV panels that were installed. Interested viewers can find more on the project page. The information provided includes a "Plant Profile" page describing the system that was installed and a "Plant Overview" that shows the amount of electricity produced by the system (kWh), the energy cost savings (dollars), and the amount of CO2 avoided (kg). To view past performance, one can adjust the date range on the bar graphs.
