Solar Powered Solar Power Lab
The solar power lab is now powered by solar! The solarization project at ASU continues to expand with the latest addition being 1 MW of capacity covering the building and parking lot of MacroTechnologyWorks, which is the building that houses the Solar Power Labs. The system provides more than enough power to offset the usage of the solar power lab. As a grid tied system, the extra power on sunny days is fed back into the grid. An additional benefit of the system is that it provides shading for over 200 cars, which is a welcome relief during the hot Phoenix summer where temperatures regularly exceed 115 F.
