The Calvert Island research station is a long way from the power grid, but like any lab, electricity demands are high. To meet that demand, the station produces electricity through solar panels and a generator; on sunny days, the panels produce half the electricity the station needs. To make the most of the diesel generator, when it is running its heat is captured in order to heat the station's buildings.
