The Fisher Hall dormitory at Yale Divinity School in New Haven is the site of the university’s second on-campus renewable energy-generating system.  Through the installation of this 40.29-kilowatt solar photovoltaic system, Yale is demonstrating its commitment to environmentally friendly technologies and its sustainable energy leadership in the Ivy League. 


The solar array, installed by Sunlight Solar Energy Inc. consists of 255 solar panels.  210 of these panels are placed on the rooftop of Fisher Hall and another 45 panels are used in a “canopy” configuration over the south-facing windows and main entrance of the building.  Together the panels will generate enough electricity to meet about 17% of the electricity requirements of the building.


Yale has made technical data, such as the amount of energy being generated by the system and the greenhouse gases avoided, available to the public through its Energy Conservation at Yale website found at www.yale.edu/energyconservation.
