Renewable Energy Projects
The 106-panel, 25 kilowatt PV project examines and documents the results of implementing ground-mounted solar energy technology on farm land while simultaneously producing a crop, is designed to produce an electric power source to offset power usage at the research farm and will demonstrate how this type of PV can be implemented by a farm cost effectively.
The University of Massachusetts Wind Energy Center is a leading institution in wind energy engineering nationally and internationally. Since 1972 the Center has worked diligently to maintain and enhance its important wind energy education programs and research activities.
This project would turn an ordinary parking lot into a solar power generation site, providing enough electricity to power the adjacent Robsham visitor's center.
