Abstract

This report describes the installation of a photovoltaic system in the Puerto Peñas camp for the independent and pollution-free generation of electricity; the uneconomical diesel generator is used only as emergency backup. It also discusses how the system is used as an educational tool, to demonstrate the different pv-systems and to explain the concept of alternative energy sources.
