University of Illinois’ Urbana-Champaign campus anticipates a new solar farm in construction to be fully operational by early 2021. It is expected to produce over 14 million kWh annually, which will triple the university’s current renewable energy generation on site. Once complete, a total average of 52,000 megawatt-hours per year, satisfying 10% of the electrical demand on campus.
Dubbed “Solar Farm 2.0”, the system will serve as a resilient landscape and pollinator habitat due to plantings located throughout the array with 17 plants included in the system blueprints.
