SRML stations: Cannon Beach, OR (PV)
(Latitude: 45.895; Longitude: 123.963; Altitude: 30 m)

This station in Cannon Beach, Oregon is designed to monitor the performance of a solar electric system as part of a project with the Energy Trust of Oregon. While we started monitoring the station in October 2003, it is part of another monitoring project and real-time data can be seen at http://www.oceansolar.com. Links in the tables below will take you to more in-depth information about the accuracy of data collected and the instruments in use.
