Solar Energy: Environmental Studies
On top of the Environmental Studies building are 216 panels that make up the 50 kilowatt solar array. Partially funded by the Duke Energy SunSense grant, these panels will have a payback period of just under 10 years! It produces enough energy to power two buildings during peak sunshine hours. The array produces an equivalent of approximately $8,000 of electricity per year. For more information, read the news article.
