Nihomachi Terrace Apartments
- none -
The original photovoltaic (PV) system housed on Nihonmachi Terrace Apartments was installed when the complex was originally built. In 2008, the original system stopped producing electricity because it was not attached to an active utility account. Thanks to the generous support of Seattle City Light, the Solar 4R Schools team got the system back up and running in 2009. In addition, energy monitoring provided to Nihonmachi Terrace has connected the real-time performance data from their 2-kilowatt system to the Energy Exploration Center at Solar4RSchools.org. Students and educators nationwide can chart, graph and analyze the system's performance data for educational purposes.
