Solar Panels Installed on Micron Business and Economics Building

An exciting new addition to the Micron Business and Economics Building happened early this week — solar panels were installed atop the Skaggs Hall of Learning. These panels will have the capacity to produce 25 kilowatts of power — the equivalent of energy used by about five households.

On Tuesday, local media were invited view the installation from the Williams Executive Boardroom on the fourth floor of our building. Dean Ken Petersen was interview by Channel 6 and Channel 2 about the project.

“To add solar power generation to our building is fantastic and in direct support of our college’s strategic priority on environmental sustainability,” said Petersen. “This addition will keep our innovative building as a model of environmental stewardship.”
