Rooftop solar sparks interest in clean energy at Yale

Scroll this

Yale’s commitment to a clean energy future is beginning to show as nearly 160 employees sign up to receive quotes for rooftop solar photovoltaic systems on their homes.

This effort stems from President Salovey’s six sustainability initiatives, announced August 2014, which also include investment in on-campus energy efficiency and student ventures in the field of sustainability, as well as a pilot project to price Yale’s carbon dioxide emissions.
