This project assessed the feasibility of WPI's parking areas for a solar canopy system, and developed a recommendation for the most effective option. Potential locations around campus were analyzed, with total area, sunlight exposure, and local topography taken into account. Regional climate patterns and solar incentives were also considered. Best practices were learned through interviews with solar installation companies and other schools with solar canopies. Ultimately, a comprehensive cost/benefit analysis was completed to estimate installation costs and payback periods.
