CCHRC Research and Testing Facility (RTF)
Solar-Power Monitoring Systems
Cold Climate Housing Research Center, with major
funding from BP, is initiating
a demonstration project for hybrid alternative-energy systems
in cold climates. Project partners include Remote
Power Inc., GW Scientific,
the University of Alaska,
Institute of Northern Engineering. This portion of the project
is focused on the application of solar power systems in cold climates.
Some of the project questions include;
Do solar trackers help extend cost benefits of in northern
Does solar reflection off fall and spring snow surfaces
increase the available power from solar systems in the arctic?
How can small communities best incorporate solar power systems
into existing power infrastructure?
We are just getting started. Please visit the below links for early information on construction
and the operations of the Campbell Scientific Inc. monitoring
station. This system is being used to measure the climate and outside operations of the
solar power system.
