Facilities and Equipment
The Center for Energy Research’s Solar Site is located on the corner of Flamingo Road and Swenson Street, at the northwest corner of UNLV’s main campus. This site houses two flat-panel Amonix concentrating photovoltaic (CPV) systems and a 100-kV solar dish. This site also has a Façade Evaluation Facility, where windows, built-in photovoltaics (BIPV) systems, and other building components can be experimentally studied.
Thomas Beam Engineering (TBE) Building
