Blackburn's Solar Array

Blackburn Solar Array (1100 block of University Street). 

As you pass by the college, you’ll see the solar array just beyond the sports fields that not only provides a renewable source for the campus’ energy needs, but also critical food and habitat for local birds, insects, and other wildlife by utilizing native plants as ground cover.  The seed selection was chosen to minimize maintenance, be tolerant of shade, and grow short enough to not interfere with the solar panels.
