FGCU Plans World’s Largest University Solar Farm

fgcu.jpgFlorida Gulf Coast University is planning the largest solar farm at any university, anywhere, ZDnet reports.

Earlier this year, Contra Costa Community College District completed the first phase of what it touted as the largest solar power installation ever constructed for a college or university in North America.

The university was given $8.5 million by Florida lawmakers this year to install the solar panels on 16 acres of its campus, the Palm Beach Post reports. Florida has said it plans to finance solar installations at some other state colleges as well.

FGCU’s solar field will supply all of the 9,500-student university’s energy needs, generate 2 megawatts per day, and save $22 million over 30 years, according to the Post.

Last year, Chevron completed a large solar installation at Fresno State.

A Web site recently launched that provides environmental compliance assistance and pollution prevention information for colleges and universities.
