Photovoltaics provides 50% of ASU's electricity demand

Arizona State University takes full advantage of being in the "Valley of the Sun" and has an agressive program to install photovoltaic generating systems with more installed PV capacity than any other university in the United States. The installations are starting to pay real dividends. On February 24 half the power used on campus in the middle of the day was provided by photovoltaic systems.

The feat was repeated again on March 10.

The output of the systems will only increase as summer progresses and there are new systems coming online all the time. The day can not be too far off when all the electrical power on campus is provided at times by photovoltaics.
