Solar Panel

Solar panels on the Engineering BuildingThe Engineering Building has solar panels funded by the State of Michigan and Detroit Mercy.

This project has two objectives to:

  • Demonstrate the seamless incorporation of photovoltaic solar energy into existing architecture and to inform and
  • Educate a wide ranging target audience about the technology.

Students and faculty installed the solar arrays on the roof. A display explaining solar photovoltaic principles and showing real-time electrical power production from the arrays is located in the building lobby.

This system powers about 40% of the building’s lighting.
