Projects in Progress
Marshall Student Center Solar Project
The Marshall Student Center is undergoing a $1.3 million project to significantly increase its solar energy production—the largest project undertaken by the USF Student Green Energy Fund to date.
The 1,075 solar panels installed on Marshall Student Center's third- and fourth-level roofs in June will generate 525,000 kWh per year, the annual energy usage of 39 homes. The project adds to a pre-existing 15 kW system on the Marshall Student Center and a 8.82 kW system on the center's amphitheater.
The new panels are expected to start generating power by mid-July. The center will use the energy during the day to offset its power usage, sending any excess energy produced back into the grid.
