SUNLAB test site up and running again

The SUNLAB test site is now operational following its move to the University of Ottawa Lees campus.  In May 2019, with the help of Morgan Solar engineers, SUNLAB students and researchers installed 2 Savanna trackers and 24 solar panels for a capacity of 7 kW. The test site will be expanded in 2020 for a total capacity of 20 kW.
