So Watt!

So Watt! - Fleet Solar Panels
Owned and operated by San Diego Gas & Electric, the 10,000 square feet of photovoltaic solar panels on the roof of the Fleet Science Center generate up to 100 kilowatts of "green" electricity for San Diego's power grid
So Watt! - So WATT Exhibits
Exhibits in "So WATT!" take visitors for a guided tour of how electricity is generated and offers simple strategies on how to conserve energy at home.
So Watt! - Watts in the Sun
Positioning the solar panels at different angles to the light source demonstrates different levels of power generated.
So Watt! - Make a Watt 1
A young visitor spins a wheel to generate electricity at "Make a Watt."
So Watt! - Make a Watt 2
Visitors are surprised to discover how much more energy is required to light traditional light bulbs as opposed to energy-efficient compact fluorescent bulbs.
