Solar Panels at Bismarck State College
Solar panels were installed at the Bismarck State College National Energy Center of Excellence. They are functional solar panels which will provide power to the building and will be monitored by renewable energy technology students. What better learning tool than real-life application.
A few things to note in the picture: 1. There’s no snow on the ground! December 23, 2011, Bismarck, ND. And no snow, and 2. You can’t see the wind blowing in the picture, but trust me, it’s blowing. And the Bismarck State College wind turbine in the picture (see it in the middle, right above the solar panels?) was twirling away!
Sunny and windy: a great day for making electricity at BSC’s National Energy Center of Excellence!
