CenSEPs has deployed three Renewable Energy Microgrids on the Central Coast of California.  The research team is excited to launch the first Renewable Energy Microgrid Data Dashboard!  


The Santa Cruz Municipal Greenwharf Testbed’s interactive dashboard (link):

  • Solar irradiance and solar energy production from 200 W solar panel
  • Wind speed, direction and energy production from 1 KW vertical axis wind turbine
