Virginia Tech announced it has completed construction and commissioning of the Perry Street Parking Garage Solar Array. The 102 KW solar array is the first large solar array on campus, providing electricity to the campus grid when it is not being utilized in the parking deck. The solar project will produce about 135 MWH’s per year, enough to power about 7 average homes. The array consists of 440 Sharp photovoltaic panels creating a renewable power generating facility that will provide clean energy for at least 25 years.
“We have a great opportunity to take our sustainability efforts to a higher level,” said Steve Mouras, director of transportation and parking services at Virginia Tech. “It’s great to see projects that will benefit the university and the surrounding community move forward.”
