ACEP Values Partnership with State’s Largest Solar Farm, National Lab



Learn more about how ACEP’s applied energy research is helping to grow the solar energy footprint in Alaska.  Through partnering with the state’s largest and only privately own solar farm, the Solar Technologies Program is helping to increase energy production through the winter months with experimental snow-shedding coatings for solar panels.

Watch this short story about the valued partnership ACEP has developed with the Willow Solar Farm, Sandia National Laboratory, Michigan State University and University of Michigan to test and monitor these show-shedding coatings.

As an applied research unit within the University of Alaska Fairbanks, “ACEP has unique access to electric utilities and private companies in Alaska. ACEP takes its relationships with its stakeholders very seriously, and we try to find the benefit to all parties involved,” said Erin Whitney, program manager for the Solar Technologies Program.
