WLTZ 38 NBC

AUBURN UNIVERSITY – Solar power is providing the energy needed to charge 10 electric vehicles, or EVs, on the campus of Auburn University. Facilities Management, in partnership with the Office of Sustainability, has funded a pilot project for the installation of 24 solar panels on top of the northeast and southeast stairwells of the stadium parking deck.

The solar panel system is capable of producing 6.6 kilowatts of power per day or about 13,250 kilowatt-hours of electrical energy per year. All of the power generated by the solar panels is fed back into the Auburn University master power grid as an offset to other energy used on campus.
