This is the fifth and largest system New England Clean Energy has installed at Nature’s Classroom in Charlton, Mass. Our first system in 2010 had 72, 210-watt panels for 15 kilowatts (kW) of power production capacity. Since then, panel efficiency and therefore production capability has continually increased. This system has 200 SunPower panels of 340-watt capacity each.
More important, the system helped achieve Nature’s Classroom’s goal of generating virtually all of its electricity from renewable sources. With this system, the organization now makes 98% of its own power for the expansive 500-acre site’s facilities, all from solar and wind.
