Sequential Bio Fuels

Location:
Eugene, OR
Technology Type:
PV System Size:
33.00 - kilowatts

The SeQuential biofuel station is a demonstration in realistic, feasible, and sustainable technologies. More than 16,000 individual photovoltaic cells are installed on 224 panels on the canopy over the fuel pumps and generate 33 kilowatts of electrical power – or enough to provide 30% to 50% of the power that the station requires. Other technologies displayed at the station include a passive solar design, a living roof covered in plants and soil and bioswales that catch rainwater, hold it on site and uses plant life and microorganisms to filters out pollutants.
