Solar Power

In July 2008, Newell Instruments installed a two-axis tracking photo voltaic array rated at 3.2kW. Assisting in the installation of the system was Habi-Tek.

The solar array consists of 16, Sanyo HIT 200 panels each with a power output of 200 Watts.  Since its installation in mid-2008, the NI Lab solar PV system has produced over 13,000 kWh of energy, enough to keep a super-efficient house comfortable for two years or to drive an electric vehicle more than 50,000 miles!
