Biodigesters and Solar PV trackers

 

After finishing the reports on the solar PV and the report on wind turbines the project has entered its final stages. CHA will be completing final edits of the reports that we have submitted so far. At this point we are editing each other’s reports and ensuring that they are complete. A few smaller reports will be created for some of the less complicated feasibility studies. For instance next week, I will be working on a report discussing the potential for bio-digesters used to break down the compost generated each day at UVM.

2.2 MW Local Solar Farm

On July 11 2012 the team and I took a visit to the currently largest solar farm in Vermont. The project, located in South Burlington, Vermont, is backed by the local Renewable Energy developer AllEarth Renewables. They provided 382 of their AllSun solar panel trackers for the project. The AllSun Trackers are pole mounted solar panels that use GPS to track the sun throughout the day which the company says allows them to produce 40% more energy than fixed solar panels. Each panel is equip with it's own inverter thus making the system more eficient.
