Solar Array - Crop and Animal Research and Education Center

Since 2010, the UMass Amherst Crop and Animal Research and Education Center in South Deerfield, MA, has been home to a ground-mounted solar photovoltaic array. The 106-panel, 25-kilowatt PV is mounted high enough off the ground to allow sunlight penetration for farming and animal grazing.  

Real-time data from the solar panels can be found at http://www.powerdash.com/systems/1000367/.
