Colorado State University’s recently completed solar energy system provides clean energy for the campus and shade for students, faculty and visitors parking at the Lake Street Parking Garage. The 132.5 Kilowatt solar electric system is the fourth project between Colorado State University and local solar energy provider, Bella Energy.

"Colorado State University has been committed to energy conservation on campus for many, many years," said Carol Dollard, energy engineer for Colorado State University.
