Solar energy array installed
A new solar array was erected on the MTSO campus in early May, on a hillside between Gault Hall and the Helen Werner Apartment Building. Plans for the 40-panel array were announced in October, when President Jay Rundell invited donors to give to the project in the amount of $750 per panel. It has been fully funded through that appeal.
The array is expected to generate 11 kilowatts of electricity for Gault Hall. It is the latest initiative in an effort to inhabit the campus in a more environmentally responsible way.
“This is one step of our ongoing commitment to make MTSO a more sustainable campus,” Rundell said. “I’m grateful to those who invested in this project.”
