  • Solar & Higher Ed - a New Partnership Higher Education and Solar Energy:
    A Partnership Whose Time Has Come

    Dec. 29, 2017 - At campuses across the country, a few early adopters took the lead with solar projects demonstrating how the technology worked predictably and reliably. Unfortunately, many of these projects were not economic, but rather showpieces or research opportunities. While well intentioned, these initiatives resulted in the mistaken view held by institutional decision makers that solar projects are a nice (but unaffordable) “luxury.” This perspective is no longer accurate, as technological progress has combined with innovative financing and large-scale manufacturing to usher us into an era of economically viable solar projects. We must get the word out that large-scale solar can be deployed cost-effectively today on campuses across the country.
