University Earns Solar Grant

Story Series
Bridgewater Magazine

BSU was one of three state agencies awarded state grants totaling $800,000 for solar canopies. The university received $261,000 for a 367 kilowatt solar canopy in the Swenson Lot estimated to generate 400,000 kilowatt hours of clean electricity annually.

The result will be $850,000 in savings over 20 years through reduced electricity costs as part of a power purchase agreement with a third-party solar developer. BSU is also installing several rooftop solar arrays across campus along with a new dual-port electric vehicle charging station.
