A new 332KW solar array on the Health Science campus is expected to save The University of Toledo nearly $30,000 (£24,000) a year while increasing the amount of renewable energy powering its facilities.
The solar array is also expected to prevent the release of approximately 6,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide while generating approximately 10.5GWh of clean electricity.
The university says students who are studying mechanical, industrial and manufacturing engineering have worked to identify the best possible site for the new project and a student 'Green Fund' scheme has spent $350,000 (£280,000) to cover the costs of installing the array.
