Bowdoin College Solar Project One Year On Archives

Last year in collaboration with SolarCity Corp., Bowdoin installed solar panels on Farley Field House, Greason Pool, Watson Arena, 52 Harpswell (a residence hall) and at the former Navy base. In that time, the solar system has generated 1,281,069 kWh of energy. This covers roughly eight percent of Bowdoin’s electricity needs. Having marked one year since the project became operational, the Bowdoin Daily Sun has compiled some facts and figures to offer some context.
