PSU Solar Project

State College has installed a 2-megawatt, advanced utility-scale photovoltaic system next to Mount Nittany Medical Center earlier last month. While it will only provide University Park with 1% of its electricity needs, it will serve as a living lab for students. Actions such as these are the necessary building blocks for a more sustainable future. During the ribbon cutting ceremony Rob Cooper stated, “This project will continue Penn State’s efforts to reduce greenhouse gases, lowering our dependence on fossil fuel based electric generation, while supporting research and grant development by creating this microgrid.”
