UTSA photo of the day: Solar panels soak up the sun
(July 29, 2015) -- It’s a bright, sun shine-y day at the H-E-B University Center, and these solar panels on the roof are soaking it up.
Installed in 2011 as part of initiatives to make San Antonio a green energy and clean technology hub, the panels give engineering students opportunities to study solar energy and prepare for careers in that field.
The solar systems are connected to a real-time monitoring system for studying solar power in various climates. The panel system produces about 427,000 kWh of energy per year. It also reduces the university’s carbon dioxide emissions by 695,000 pounds per year and the carbon footprint by 87.5 metric tons per year, the equivalent of planting 98 acres of trees.
