The Brightwater Treatment Facility demonstrates environmental stewardship and sustainability by hosting a Planet Power solar energy system. Through the project, visitors to the center learn how solar energy is harnessed and converted to useful electricity in photovoltaic panels. The solar system and accompanying real-time monitoring kiosk provide hands-on experience with sustainable energy systems while helping power Brightwater’s learning center.
The photovoltaic (PV) system features a 3.85 kW array of Silicon Energy modules. Over an average year, the system will produce more than 4,235 kilowatt-hours of clean, renewable energy.
