University of Dayton signs PPA for solar power
The University of Dayton has signed a PPA calling for the installation of 4,026 solar panels with a capacity of 1.26 megawatts, expected to provide approximately 2% of campus-wide power consumption and offset carbon emissions by about 1% annually.
As part of the PPA, Cincinnati-based Melink Corporation will engineer and construct the arrays, and sell the electricity to the University. The University has an option to purchase the arrays after eight years. During the 30-year lifespan of the arrays, the University anticipates it will save about $300,000 and prevent 39,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide from being added to the atmosphere.
