          Solar Array



          The Solar Array panels, a $1.1 million project near the McComb Fieldhouse, underscore and reinforce Edinboro's commitment to reusable energy in all forms.

          solar array on campus On November 2, 2011, the massive solar array along Scot Road was unveiled. The array is a $1.16 million solar power generating system, capable of producing 227,000 kilowatt hours of electricity annually—enough to power 23.5 average homes for an entire year. Thanks to a successful application submitted by the Physics and Technology Department Chair, Dr. Richard Lloyd, to the U.S. Department of Energy (National Energy Technology Laboratory) and the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection for a Green Energy Works! targeted grant, the University received $474,000 as part of federal economic stimulus funding made available for eight solar projects in Pennsylvania.

          The array is one of the best examples of Edinboro University’s commitment to sustainability as the array offset 262 tons of annual carbon emissions. To complement the educational purpose of the University, a kiosk was installed inside McComb Fieldhouse to scientifically verify, record and display the amount of electricity being generated by the new system in real time and at the exact moment of viewing.
