[nggallery id=4]At the 2009 Sustainable Energy Conference held on July 27–August 1, the Sustainable Energy Fund gave Lafayette College a $15,000 grant to fund the construction and installation of the College’s second solar array, a 3-kilowatt panel installed at Metzgar Fields Athletic Complex. The solar array is being used to power equipment for the College’s composting and community gardens project at Metzgar.

An array of photovoltaic solar panels was installed on the roof of the Acopian Engineering Center. Data from these panels is collected and analyzed by Lafayette College students as part of an Electrical Engineering Department course.
