UVM Central Heat Plant - Solar Array Upgrade & Optimization

2012-13 Projects
Project Timeline: 
05/2013 to 05/2014
Project Progress: 
100%

This was a two-phase project.  The first phase upgraded the existing solar array panels, a 4.8-kW system installed in 2001, on the UVM Central Heating Plant. Inverters were installed to existing panels, enhancing the public access to data via a dashboard system. The second phase involved the installation of additional 29.8- kW solar panels with new technology on the UVM Central Heating Plant. The dashboard system for the upgrade and new installation helps compare two solar panel systems of differing ages.
