University of Illinois Wassaja Hall | 33 kW

Fixed Rooftop Solar

In 2008, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign signed the American College & University Presidents’ Climate Commitment. This action committed the campus to carbon neutrality by 2050. The Ikenberry Commons (Wassaja Hall) solar array is part of the campus’ Illinois Climate Action Plan (iCAP) which lays out a path toward the fulfillment of this commitment. This dormitory was built in 2015 and features a fixed mount design that ensures structural integrity and maximizes energy production with a limited rooftop space.
