Salem Campus 616 kWdc Solar PV Array, ground, fixed-tilt mounting (Virtual)
Kent State at Salem Campus 616 kW ground mounted solar array consists of 1,560 panels on a fenced-in plot of ground behind the main classroom building. Connecting to the campus electric system, the 616 kW system produces clean electricity to serve 73 percent of the electricity for the campus. This is enough electricity to power 95 homes and translates to an expected minimum cost savings of about $280,000 for the Salem Campus over the 25 years of the contract. The project will reduce the carbon footprint by 617 tons of carbon dioxide, equivalent to removing 121 cars from the roads.
