Sites

Across all EPRI solar research projects, over 200 PV systems are monitored. Site locations are shown on the map below to give an approximate spread of where we have installed monitoring equipment. Most sites are monitored with private partnership with member utilities, but data is available from select sites that are monitored publicly. Please see Measurement Data for 1-click downloads of public measurement data subsets.

Many PV systems monitored are single-module pole mounted units. These are installed by utility line crews onto poles at specific locations along distribution circuits. The photo below shows the line crew installing a single-module monitoring system in Spring 2012.
