Each of the pole mounted arrays is 1.88 kilowatts. One such array is being installed at the field station starting the last weekend of April.

Solar panels charge 12 volt battery supplying power to the flux detector.

Composed of a small solar cell which measures electric current over time which is linearly related to the solar radiation in W/m2

Purpose: Measure total energy per day available from the sun and compare with total energy fed in to the grid from the PV array.
