Our group conducted a feasibility analysis for the installation of a Solar Learning Lab at WPI. The Solar Learning Lab is a concept developed by our sponsor, Heliotronics, that combines a solar photovoltaic array and a data acquisition system. To achieve our goal, we interviewed stakeholders, gathering information concerning logistical considerations, learning of contributions that they could offer, and discussing possible benefits of the installation. We analyzed the results to determine the feasibility of installation, incorporation into educational programs, and overall sustainability.
