Solar Energy at Arcadia
Adjustable Tracking Panel Array
A tilting, rotating solar photovoltaic (PV) array was installed in October 2017. Unlike a static/fixed array, this panel uses a tracker that follows the sun across the sky. It adjusts to the height of the sun above the horizon as it changes during the day and throughout the seasons, harnessing 45% more power than fixed panels.
The installation of this new array was made possible through the support of Northeast Solar and contributions from two exceptionally generous community members.
Fixed Panel Array
Arcadia's fixed panel 10.2kW solar photovoltaic (PV) array came online in November 2010. The chart below shows the energy production from the array. Mouseover the graph or click on any day for more detail. Choose a different date range with the buttons at the top right of the graph.
