University of California Natural Reserve System Weather Stations

The environmental monitoring & services markets are currently worth many tens of billions of dollars annually and continue to grow quickly. SunWize’s goal is to help governments and private businesses remain at the forefront by leveraging our industry leading solar system solutions to power a growing array of sensors, devices, nodes and networks that span every corner of the globe.

The solar solutions provided by SunWize for the UC Natural Reserve System (UCNRS) weather stations are a great example of some of the 15,000 system deployments we have done on all 7 continents that are tailored specifically to environmental sampling efforts.

  • The UCNRS is the world’s largest university reserve system, covering over 750,000 acres and 41 sites

  • The UCNRS has a weather station on each site as part of a climate monitoring grant

  • This weather data is fed through the Dendra project, a cloud-based, multi-organizational system supporting massive permanent monitoring efforts.

  • SunWize provided the stand-alone solar systems for the range of monitoring equipment’s power requirements
