The second array was integrated into the architecture of the Instructional Centre when the building was constructed.  The Instructional Centre panels are tilted at the optimum 45 degree angle to the sun, and also double as sun shades, reducing the building's cooling load in summer.  There are a total of 120 panels and the array has a total surface area of 145.6 square meters.  The array has a total capacity of 21 kilowatts.
