Met-Ed/Penelec Sustainable Energy Fun Awards $230,000 Grant for Rooftop Solar at University of Pittsburgh-Bradford, McKean County
The Met-Ed/Penelec Sustainable Energy Fund has awarded a $230,000 grant toward a green building project at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford. The $22 million project includes a new academic building to house new engineering technology programs on campus, including energy engineering technology.
The $230,000 grant will fund a rooftop solar array projected to produce approximately 113,000 kWh/year and a building energy dashboard that will aid in community education and engagement.
The building, which is currently being constructed, will be built to a gold level of Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification from the U.S. Green Building Council. Construction is expected to be complete by fall 2022.
