Custom fish screens • Montpelier, Idaho (Idaho Fish & Game)
SYSTEM DETAILS: off-grid, custom-designed, solar PV fish screen
PROJECT NOTES: Prior to the installation of this PV system, a Fish & Game employee was required to travel to this stream every hour to run a generator for fifteen minutes to power the fish screen. It operates by turning a drum to clear the screen of debris that would prevent water from passing through. The solar PV and battery-storage power supply saves employees time; it also saves fish from getting into a farm irrigation ditch and ending up in the farmers’ fields.
