In a big step forward to operate as a more sustainable and resilient campus, SSU has received approval from the Chancellor’s Office to install an array of solar panels in several campus parking lots. The solar arrays will produce about 4.5 megawatts (approximately one-third) of what the university currently uses each day, of clean, renewable electricity -- and is part of a grander vision and commitment to SSU's Climate Action Plan. Construction on the solar array project will begin in the summer of 2023 and is expected to be in operation by summer of 2024.
