This continues the report from 5/9/07 about installation of a set of solar panels.
Eight panels, each with 160 Watt capacity, were donated by PTL [Photovoltaic Testing Laboratory], which is a part of Arizona State University.
Installation of utilities is in progress in a maintenance room below the S.O.D. Unit.
The new utility board is mounted with the new DR Series Power Inverter/Charger and other utility instrumentation. This will bring together the wiring from the solar panels to distribute collected energy from the panels to path lighting fixtures, and monitor collection and distribution.
[from upper left] Workshop participant Rebecca Manning and Dr. Sparks install the electric conduit that will protect the wiring leading from the solar panels to the utility maintenance room.
[from upper left] Brackets for the solar panels have been installed and painted and the crew now lifts and mounts the individual panels into place.
The panels were graciously donated by PTL [Photovoltaic Testing Laboratory], which is a part of Arizona State University. We extend a hearty Thank You to Program Manager William Shisler for this generous donation.
