    UB To Build Solar Energy Array to Power Campus Housing

    In its effort to promote renewable energy technologies throughout New York State and in response to Governor Paterson's call to expand New York's renewable energy portfolio, the New York Power Authority today joined with the University at Buffalo to announce a $7.5 million award to the university to construct a 1.1 megawatt solar energy array on UB's North (Amherst) Campus. The solar array, consisting of approximately 5,000 photovoltaic panels, will generate clean energy directly from the sun for students living in UB's apartment complexes.
