Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship students Jimmy Hadley and Tim Smith worked with Dr. E.J. Zita in summer 2015 to study the feasibility of heating Evergreen’s pool with solar thermal unglazed flat panels.
It’s an order of magnitude more cost effective than solar PV!
SURF students and Zita evaluated solar options for Evergreen, building on the work of Energy Systems & Climate Change students in 2014.
Viability of using ground source heat exchange to heat Mod housing unit(s).
As a team we set out to assess the available locations for future solar panel installations. We had to keep in mind the criterion for visibility, along with other factors to be considered when installing solar panels. Such as shading from surrounding objects, and the direction in which the buildings and their roofs are facing. The Lab Buildings, Lecture Halls, Sem I and Sem 2 Buildings, Com, CAB, CRC, HCC and the Soccer Pavilion were all seen as possible pt
ions for solar panel installation. The library already has a solar array with plenty of space for additional units.
The CAB, CRC, SEM2 A and B present good opportunities for their own photovoltaic (PV) systems.
