CSU has been listed as one of the top four public research universities for solar power by the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education and reported by the Northern Colorado Business Report today.

Colorado State hosts about 5,500 kilowatts of solar power on its campus, largely concentrated on a 30-acre site on the Foothills Campus in west Fort Collins. The plant annually produces about 8.5 million kilowatt-hours of electricity, or the equivalent of enough power for about 1,000 homes.

“Colorado State is committed to building sustainability into our campus environment in everything from using recyclables in our dining halls to building a biomass boiler on our Foothills Campus,” said Amy Parsons, CSU’s vice president for operations.
