This graph shows the energy collection of the solar panels throughout the day compared to the yesterdays generation. The energy generated from the solar panels is measured in kilowatt hours (kWh).
The NAH is equipped with a 300kw solar panel array on its roof. Positioned to maximize their exposure to the sun, these panels collect solar energy throughout the day to supplement the buildings energy needs.

How do solar panels work?
During the day solar panels collect sunlight and turn it into power. If the panels collect more then the building needs, the extra power gets stored for later use.
Each solar panel contains photovoltaic (PV) cells. PV cells take light, or photons, and convert it to solar electricity. When sunlight hits the solar panel, PV cells produce direct current (DC) electricity.
