Infusing Instruction and Operations for Sustainability

Problems cannot be solved at the same level of awareness that created them ~ Albert Einstein

 

Today’s post is a simple link to an article about a project we’ve been working on at Sierra College.  In our Energy Technology Program we use our advanced solar class to do commercial level installation work on our main campus.  Over the last 3 years the students have completed a project in 3 stages culminating in a 99 panel, nearly 18,000 watt system valued at nearly $100,000 and providing the college $4000 worth of electrical savings each year.  The link is to an article about our recent ribbon cutting for this project:

Do you have similar success stories from your campus, let us know about them we’d love to publicize them.
