University of Denver to Add Solar 

The University of Denver plans to construct on-campus solar and off-site net metering solar projects totaling 23 megawatts DC (MWdc) of clean energy.

The university will utilize renewable energy generated by solar installations owned and operated by Pivot Energy, allowing it to offset campus electricity consumption with clean solar power and helping the university achieve its goal of carbon neutrality by 2030.

A 1.2 MWdc on-site solar system will be located on the Ritchie Center, increasing on-site clean energy to 10% of the university's energy consumption. The solar addition is an expansion of the university’s 2019 solar project with Pivot.

Six off-site net metering solar projects will total 22.2 MWdc, producing enough clean energy to eliminate 100% of Scope 2 GHG emissions. 

The projects will be in Larimer, Adams, Mesa and Weld counties and will take 24 to 36 months to complete. 

"The university's goal of achieving carbon neutrality will be achieved through our relentless determination to build a better world and future for our students," said the University of Denver Chancellor Jeremy Haefner in a statement. "I'm thrilled to partner with Pivot to work towards achieving a promise I made when I became DU's chancellor."
