Executive Summary

UW-Solar is collaborating with Perkins+Will and UW-Biology to install a 100 kW solar array on the roof of the Life Sciences Building. The solar array will generate approximately 105,000 kWh of energy per year. This will reduce the carbon footprint of the building by nearly 80 metric tons of CO2e per year, which is equal to the amount of carbon generated from burning over 85,000 pounds of coal. UW-Solar previously worked with Perkins+Will on the construction of the Building-Integrated Photovoltaic (BIPV) fins that are installed on the south facade of the building.
