Yosemite National Park Solar Energy

For being a clean energy developed and accepted (and it continues to progress as regards technological advances) solar energy is the axis of the major projects that are shaping the world of energy production, taking examples as in the case of United States, where the large uninhabited areas are taking advantage to placing Pharaonic projects from solar farms to supply the whole cities.

On this occasion, the novelty is in activity of one attraction to the well-known Yosemite National Park, also known to tourists as The captain, who in addition to marvel at the flora and native fauna, have realised that also is committed to clean energy.

Is that now boasts a major installation of photovoltaic solar panels that allow you to get about 672 kW of energy distributed as follows: 500 kW of solar energy in a parking lot, 100 kW a shed roof and 72 kW on a wall close to the administrative offices and maintenance.

This facility, which had a cost of some 4.5 million of $, and consisted of approximately 2,800 photovoltaic solar panelsyou can supply energy to the Park and operating savings of at least $ 50,000 a year in energy consumption.
