North Mountain Park Nature Center
- none -
Located in Ashland, the panels were installed on the roof of the pavilion at North Mountain Park just east of the Nature Center in October of 2005. The PV modules collect solar energy and a utility-interactive inverter converts the DC power from the PV array to AC power. The power is then synchronized with the city's electricity. BEF assisted in the project by providing data monitoring service in October 2008. Energy monitoring provided by the Solar 4R Schools program made the live performance data from their PV system available for educational purposes at the time of the project.
