  1. Net Metering on campus

    For all of our buildings with renewable energy systems, we employ a net metering method.  We deduct the energy supplied by the system from the building load on the campus grid.  So, if ECE uses about 250,000 kwh of electricity per month, and the rooftop array will supply 10,000 kwh per month, then the net bill for the ECE building will be 240,000 kwh at the campus electricity rate.  Therefore, the building gets full credit for the energy supplied by the array.

  2. Join your neighbors getting solar PVs!

    Associated Project(s): 

    Champaign and Piatt County home and business owners installing solar energy have triggered the second 1% discount in the Solar Urbana-Champaign program! The program makes it faster, easier, and more affordable to go solar by leveraging the power of volume purchasing, and a community-education campaign.

  3. Capacity of distribution lines

    Associated Project(s): 

    U19005: Electrical-Medium Voltage Power Distribution Study Updates - should start in mid-September - to evaluate capacity of power distribution line connected to proposed solar farm 2.0 site.

  4. Capacity of Solar PVs for shed roof

    Associated Project(s): 

    The solar PV design for the rooftop of the Idea Garden shed is 12 panels with 340 Watts each, which is a total of 4.08 kWdc. The construction estimate is in progress at F&S, then an interconnect agreement will be needed from Ameren.
