2018 Solar Project

This campaign ended on October 15, 2018, but you can still make a gift to Centre College by clicking here!

In summer 2017, Centre installed our first solar photovoltaic system on the roof of Chowan Multipurpose Building.  That system was purchased through a grant from Pepsico Foundation Zero Impact Fund, donations from students and alumni, and contributions from the Student Government Association and the President’s Office.

We are now pursuing a second phase to the Chowan Multipurpose Building installation.  We hope to install an additional sixty 330 watt Trina solar panels, bringing us up to the maximum current regulatory limit. We already have three-fourths of the funds we need to complete the Chowan Solar PV installation.  We received a second donation from Pepsico Foundation Zero Impact Fund, and also donations from individuals and from the Student Government Association. 

Since all of the infrastructure (inverters, conduits, safety disconnects) were included in the 2017 effort, the price per panel ($400/panel) and cost per watt ($1.25/watt) will be quite low.  Would you consider supporting this effort?  All gifts, no matter the size, will make a difference.

We need 17 more panels to complete Centre’s first on-campus renewable energy facility.  I’ve donated $400 for one panel, and I encourage you to consider joining me in supporting this effort.

We’ve now got 16 panels to go, so we need $6,400 to complete this project!
