Capturing Solar Energy at the Sustainability Hub Public

open in viewer

The National Grid Sustainability Hub on Main Street in Worcester is a center for community education on sustainable practices. Adding solar power to the Hub would provide further education on renewable resources and serve as a model to the Worcester public. The Hub has large storefront windows which let in substantial heat and light. This project provided a detailed design of a photovoltaic system which would both capture the light energy and minimize heat gain. Furthermore, this project provides educational resources to the Hub to show to its customers and it also provides a community charging station in order to draw visitors into the Hub. This will hopefully serve as a model for the greater Worcester community.
