While Central New York State might not get a lot of visible sunlight in mid-February, Syracuse University is taking advantage of the sunshine it does receive throughout the year as part of its campus sustainability program.
During a recent renovation project at Schine Student Center, SU installed photovoltaic (PV) panels last summer which started generating power in October 2020. The project was design by SU’s Campus Planning, Design and Construction (CPDC) engineering team with input from staff members at SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry.
According to the University, the Schine Center’s 139 panels have a capacity of 50 kw and are expected to generate 66,000 kWh per year.
Archi-Technology provided Technology Construction Management services for the installation of required network infrastructure connections from the rooftop solar panels to the University’s energy management IP-connected systems.
Our thanks to our project manager Richard Ladd for his contributions to this green project.
