Project Summary

Solar Energy Potential at Georgia Southern University Dr. David Calamas ($31,424.75)

Assessed the solar energy potential at Georgia Southern University. Equipment to measure the magnitude, direction, and duration of incident thermal radiation from the sun will be installed. A monitoring station connected to the equipment allowed the solar energy potential at Georgia Southern University to be monitored throughout the year. The data was analyzed to determine the viability and cost effectiveness of using solar energy as an energy course on campus and recommendations were made as to which, if any, technology would be appropriate to use on campus.
