UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS (WCIA) — A newly-installed solar panel project is now generating renewable electricity at UIUC.

The installation, on top of the Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) building, is powering the state-of-the-art facility and adding to the campus-wide grid.

The installation gets  building closer to its ultimate goal of net-zero energy. The panels are expected to contribute roughly one-fifth of the facility’s electrical needs.
