Solar Carports: Turning University Parking Facilities into Renewable Electricity Plants
September 26, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - September 30, 2017 @ 2:00 pm EDTFree
Today, there are an estimated 5,300 colleges and universities in the United States, and together, those campus facilities contain millions of parking spaces. This webinar explores how colleges and universities can transform their underutilized parking facilities into solar power generation systems. By installing on-site solar, institutions can better control their energy costs, reduce their carbon footprints, meet stated renewable energy goals, and develop real-world teaching tools. In addition, solar carports shade and protect cars from the elements, reduce parking lot temperatures, and are a highly visible reminder of a school’s commitment to renewable energy.
The webinar will feature two case studies of universities with solar carport projects.
