Try this at home: track energy produced by city solar panels
The energy production of the city’s new solar array can be viewed on an online graph. Additional hardware has recently been installed to the solar panel at the Mercer Island Community and Event Center.
According to the E-gauge graphs, peak production usually occurs around noon on a daily basis, and will reach its highest during the summer months. The efficient panels produce power during rainy or cloudy weather.
Viewers can adjust the timeframe by clicking on the purple boxes and will also notice a summary of the income and energy produced over time. The panels feed power directly to the Mercer Room at the Community Center, and also earn approximately $2,500 in state production incentives each year.
Mercer Islanders can learn more about solar installation and view the energy production of the panels at any time by logging into the E-gauge energy tracking website, eGauge6445 Center, at http://egauge6445.egaug.es.
