Solar Plant Production Statistics
In the fall of 2021, a 25.5kW solar array was installed at Telemark by IPS (Integrated Power Systems). The lower portion of the array can be seen in the upper centre of the above Sheds photo.
The solar array consists of 60 panels, each capable of producing up to 425W of DC electrical power. Fifteen microinverters convert the DC output of the panels to 240V AC power that is fed back into the BC Hydro electrical grid.
Although the electricity production is limited during the ski season by short days and typical cloud cover, the array is projected to produce as much energy in a year as the Telemark Nordic Centre consumes. The panels are angled such that they usually shed snow on their own within a day or so of a snow fall. If necessary, staff will clear the panels of snow.
