Duke University in North Carolina has launched a new partnership to purchase 101MW of capacity from new solar farms in order to cover 50% of its electricity needs with renewables and accelerate its journey toward carbon-neutrality.
The university, which has committed to becoming carbon-neutral by 2024, has teamed up with the US developer Pine Gate Renewables to build the new solar farms - they are expected to be online by 2022.
Compared to a 2007 baseline, the addition of this solar energy when combined with existing and planned efforts, is projected to result in a 69% reduction in the university’s carbon dioxide emissions by 2022 and a 73% reduction by 2024.
