Touro University Nevada, with partners NV Energy and Blue Oak Energy, installed a rooftop solar structure. The solar installment is part of Touro’s commitment to expanding healthcare efforts in the Southern Nevada community.
The project has many benefits for the university including reducing the overall carbon footprint, saving in overall energy costs, and allowing for future expansion of the campus into the existing unfinished spaces inside the building.
The 3,420 panels installed on the school’s rooftop will produce approximately 60% of the university’s total energy needs. The project consists of two 500 megawatt solar array systems, one on the main building and one on the adjacent building with all of the energy produced on the adjacent building flowing into the main building.
