NREL’s newest PV array at the National Wind Technology Center near Boulder, Colo., is an opportunity to study how ecosystems respond to renewable energy development and develop best management practices that re-establish habitat, minimize weed invasion, prevent erosion and protect wildlife.NREL’s newest source of clean energy – a 1 megawatt solar array – is supplying laboratory researchers with more than carbon-free electricity. It’s also an opportunity to examine a sensitive topic – the potential environmental impacts of large-scale renewable energy projects.Technology Center face skyward to follow the sun.
