Solar panels on Coors Event Center roof
CU has many PV installations throughout campus, including the UMC, Coors Event Center, Housing and Maintenance Center, Center for Innovation and Creativity, Wolf Law, Bear Creek Carport, C4C Parking Garage and most recently the Research Park Solar Farm. All of these installations add up to about 1,500,350 kWh/year, which is enough to power 1,500 homes!

In addition to PV installations, CU purchases renewable energy credits and carbon offsets to lower the campus carbon footprint!
