In 2019, USG partnered with the Maryland Energy Administration to install solar panel systems on campus. Completed in the Spring of 2020, full solar panel systems were installed on the Traville Garage, the BSE, and Building 1. New panels were added to the existing array on the Shady Grove Garage.

Combined, these solar panels are expected to produce 1,035 MWh of electrical power every year—enough energy to power 99 average-sized homes!

Additional information can be found on the USG Solar Kiosk.
