Florida State University has entered into a partnership with the City of Tallahassee that will provide the university with solar energy, making campus even greener.
The City of Tallahassee is putting the finishing touches on the community’s first solar farm as part of the Tallahassee Solar Program, which allows residents and businesses to have all or a portion of their monthly electricity consumption powered by solar energy.
Florida State will procure approximately 20 million kilowatt hours of clean, green solar energy each year — about 10 percent of the energy consumption of FSU’s main campus.
“We are excited to partner with the City of Tallahassee,” said Kyle Clark, vice president for Finance and Administration. “This partnership is a key part of our strategic plan to reduce our overall footprint and build a university-wide culture of environmental care. FSU continues to be a leader in efficiency and effectiveness.” [click here for full article]
