Why doesn’t Emory have more solar panels on campus? What can I do to encourage more of them being installed?

Emory currently has solar installations on the 1762 Clifton Road and the North Decatur Road buildings. There are also solar panels at the WaterHub, four new small solar charging stations on campus, and plans to install solar panels on more buildings. These projects are part of the Georgia Power Advanced Solar Initiative (ASI), which allows entities like Emory to partner with a solar developer to install solar panels and then sell the energy produced back to Georgia Power. Encouraging Georgia Power and Emory’s Administration to pursue further solar installations is a great way to help take steps towards a cleaner energy source for Emory University.
