NREL in the Community

NREL takes pride in its world-class research, talented staff, sustainable campus, and results that positively impact our local, national, and global communities. There are many ways for those in our community to discover what were all about.

New rows of photovoltaic (PV) modules were recently installed on the southern edge of the NREL campus to measure how their efficiency at converting sunlight into electricity changes over time. That change, called the degradation rate, will be posted on NREL's website along with the manufacturers' names. To start, 50 solar modules made by three manufacturers will be deployed in 2017. Then, each year for the following two years, additional sets of 50 modules made by other companies will be added. Learn more.
