Morehouse College Generates Pollution Free Power

Our 100 watt solar panel, with Mr. Don Meadows, Superintendent of Physical Plant, on the roof of the Technology Tower (Merrill Hall is on the right and Hope Hall, not visible, is to the left in this photograph).

DC 24v current from the solar panel is converted to AC 115v current by this inverter. The inverter also provides data to a computer interface that monitors the cumulative total energy output of this system (KWh).

Check back for the addition of a KWh counter, energy dollars saved, carbon dioxide emissions prevented, and efficiency data.
