University of Oregon installs solar awnings

Aug. 11, 2008
Units will provide cooling, daylighting and collect solar energy

TheUniversity of Oregon has begun installing newly designed solar awnings on its Eugene campus that will provide solar energy, passive cooling and daylighting. If they prove to be successful, the awnings could start showing up on all seven Oregon University System campuses. The awnings will run outside a 56-foot hallway on the third floor of Onyx Bridge, a building that connects Pacific and Klamath halls and is recognized by its X-shaped exterior trusses. Solar panels on the awnings will generate almost a kilowatt of electricity.
