Converting Sunshine to
Electricity with a Solar Photovoltaic Canopy
County's 20 kilowatt (kW) photovoltaic (PV) solar array is an aluminum parking
lot canopy structure which serves a dual purpose of producing clean electricity
and providing shade for cars parked beneath. The PV system consists of 72
polycrystalline photovoltaic modules and 3 inverters which convert DC current
from the solar panels to AC electricity. Each module produces 270 watts of DC
power, for a total canopy production of just under 20,000 watts. The solar
modules have a fixed tilt of 5 degrees and face south, toward the equator, to
maximize the amount of sunlight captured.
