Solar Ingenuity

The UW has always been a star when it comes to the environment. But on April 4, the wattage of the UW’s ecological efforts shined even brighter as Gov. Jay Inslee, ’73, and Earth Day Founder Denis Hayes turned out for the celebration of the installation of 128 solar panels on top of Mercer Court’s A Building. The installation is an effort of UW Solar, a student-led organization supported by the Campus Sustainability Fund. UW Solar is made up of 11 students—form undergrads to doctoral candidates—representing five schools, five departments and two campuses within the UW system.
