Abstract

The objective of this study was to determine the feasibility of the installation and utilization of photovoltaic systems for on the Worcester Polytechnic Institute campus. The two most suitable buildings for a photovoltaic system are Morgan Hall and Daniels Hall. Each building has enough unused roof space to install a 3.6kW system. A cost benefit analysis was conducted to illustrate when the system would begin to save WPI money on electricity. This analysis was performed based on the cost of electricity for several different economic scenarios. This established how feasible the proposed system will be given a 10 year payback requirement by WPI facilities.
