In August of 2000 several Pacific Northwest power concerns worked together to commission the installation of three significant photovoltaic (PV) systems in Ashland.
One of these was installed on the Southern Oregon University's Hannon Library. The 6-kilowatt PV system on Hannon Library consists of 24 solar panels connected together to send power that feeds directly into the City of Ashland's 3-phase power grid, at 220 volts AC.
Energy monitoring services provided to the university by Solar 4R Schools connected the live performance data from their PV 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.
