Tour of the Solar Array

Saturday, May 20, 2017 at 11:30am to 12:15pm

Jesse Philips Physical Education Center Philips Physical Education Center, Oberlin, OH 44074

Join us rain or shine for the opportunity to see the largest solar array on any liberal arts college campus. About the same size as Tappan Square, this array generates about 12 percent of the college’s electricity.

Join the Office of Environmental Sustainability for a walk to view the 2.27 MW solar array. The group will meet the sustainability coordinator at Jesse Philips Physical Education Center and walk together to the south side of the array (off Prospect Street), where the group can learn about the array and learn about sustainability initiatives at Oberlin more generally.

Please wear comfortable shoes. If wet, the site might be slightly muddy.
