Cal State Long Beach Adds Solar Panels on Campus, Advancing Sustainability PlanRelease Date: 2017-09-15
To advance toward a goal of carbon neutrality on campus by 2030, Cal State Long Beach (CSULB) recently completed construction on the largest solar panel installations in the city and of all 23 CSU campuses, a fact that was officially announced this morning during a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
Parking lots seven and 14 house the new solar panels. Several awnings line the parking lots without taking up space that might have otherwise been used for student vehicles.
The roughly $18 million project is not being paid for by the school, but instead through a Power Purchase Agreement.
