Abstract

WPI's campus has approximately 60,000 ft2 available roof space for photovoltaic(PV) installations. This translates into the availability of a total maximum power of 426kW and the potential to generate an impressive 500MWh/year. By producing this, WPI will be reducing the amount of CO2 by 400 tons/year which is the equivalent to planting about 1900 trees. This study helped to determine the feasibility of "Photovoltization" of the WPI campus.
