University of Richmond Solar Dashboard

University of Richmond's solar array has been in operation since June 15, 2016. Since that time, the array has produced over 272 megawatt hours of electricity. You can view real time energy production through our solar dashboard.

The first page of the dashboard shows an overview of energy production at a specific moment, lifetime energy production, and a graph of the day's energy production. Much like a speedometer measures the rate at which a car is moving, the "Production Now" meter measures the rate at which our solar array is producing electricity in kilowatts. Nxt to it, similarly to how an odometer shows the total distance a car has driven, the "Lifetime Production" meter measures how many megawatt hours of electricity our array has produced since it began operating.

On the second page, you'll find a more detailed graph of the day's, week's, month's, or year's energy production. Energy production is highest midday on a sunny day. At night the graph is flat, while cloudy weather causes dips in the graph throughout the day.

The third page shows more pictures and facts about the University of Richmond solar array and on the last page you'll get a chance to learn about how solar energy is produced.
