Project Manager: Todd Merchant
The University’s Clean Energy Fund (CEF) sponsored this project which includes the installation of a 32kW static electric grid-tied photovoltaic system at the University of Vermont’s Miller Research Equine Center. This solar panel arrangement is projected to generate power that offsets the electrical demands of the horse barn including computer, lighting, appliances and other miscellaneous equipment. The 134-panel rooftop array covers most of the Equine Center south-facing roof, and includes Enphase microinverter technology, which enables real-time monitoring and analysis of power production for each individual solar panel, improving energy harvest and system reliability. A net-metered system, the power that is generated will be directed into the utility grid.
