University of California, San Diego has launched its third major solar project increasing total production to nearly 3 million watts. Construction began on the summer solstice at Mayer Hall, one of seven on campus sites that will house the new solar arrays.

"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."
