As the sun reaches its annual peak on the summer solstice, the University of California, San Diego continues climbing new heights as a solar power leader. Seven new campus sites totaling nearly 764,000 watts will add to the already impressive solar portfolio and are expected to save UCSD approximately $2 million over 20 years.

"Our campus is a leader in energy advancements," said Dave Weil, UC San Diego director of building commissioning and sustainability, "UC San Diego generates more than 90 percent of its electricity with an ultra-clean and efficient natural-gas-fired cogeneration plant, renewable energy fuel cell and solar photovoltaics and we're making progress toward achieving carbon neutrality by 2025."
