UWinnipeg begins major solar panel installation 

May 14, 2019

The University of Winnipeg has announced that it will soon be home to one of the largest solar panel installations in the city. The university has begun to install 540 solar panels on the roof of the Axworthy Health and RecPlex building, which will reportedly deliver 178,000 watts of clean, renewable energy over the course of a calendar year. The project is expected to be fully installed by late July, with power officially being switched on in the fall. "We are committed to achieving our renewable energy targets through the use of geothermal, sustainable biomass, and solar energy," said Kyle Macdonald, UWinnipeg Executive Director of Facilities. UWinnipeg (MB)
