April 11, 2018The Strathclyde University/Cosanti Foundation educational program continues this year with the arrival of Lim Chon Keat, known to us as “CK”. As with past participants, CK’s studies include the theory of Arcology, overseen by Co-President Jeff Stein, and sustainable technologies, overseen by Habitat Coordinator Scott Riley. This year the sustainable technologies studies are focused on our electrical system and related solar photovoltaic potentials.In the first photo CK is pictured on the right, working alongside Dennis McLaughlin, a visiting electrical engineer who is undertaking an extensive study of our primary electrical system.In the second photo, CK and resident Solar PV expert Michael Bittman are inspecting one of the many Solar PV rooftop installations at Arizona State University. The information will be useful in the design of a similar system for our Visitors Parking lot.The final image is the “energy mountain” – an energy use graph of the ten transformers of the campus electrical system against the backdrop of the midnight-to-midnight sky.
