Learn about the First, Second, and Third generation solar cells, the first generation polycrystalline silicon cells used at the facility, 3 phase AC power invertors, and regulatory issues involved in designing, building and maintaining the array. There will be presentations and a solar facility walkthrough. Family friendly, free transportation and refreshments provided.
