Abstract

Our team created a prototype system to monitor compliance with the "Merton Rule," which mandates that buildings produce 10% of their energy from renewable energy sources. We developed and installed the prototype system at a new retail facility and retrieved energy information from a sensor connected to solar panels from a remote computer. We evaluated the use of the prototype system with other forms of renewable energy and analyzed the financial viability of the Merton Rule.
