Draker Labs says it has been selected by Johnson Controls to provide monitoring services for the Milwaukee Area Technical College's Photovoltaic Educational Laboratory. The solar project utilizes Draker's monitoring solution that comprises hardware to collect environmental and performance data, a Web interface for analysis and reporting, and field services to assist in the installation and commissioning of the solar systems.
The 540 kW project is situated on the Milwaukee River and features eight different configurations of solar panels from four different manufacturers. The facility serves as a training center for technicians, designers, electricians and other professionals in the field of renewable energy. Energy produced at the site is being used to operate the Milwaukee Public Television transmitter, which is co-located at the site.
