Since Renewable Energy is being highlighted this month, how is the largest single rooftop solar panel array in downtown Denver doing nearly a year after installation was completed? The Auraria Campus Library rooftop solar panels have generated 887 Megawatt hours of electricity since the start of 2020, which is enough to power 72 homes for a year.


Throughout this newsletter you will find more stats on

 the Auraria Library Rooftop Solar Array!

Thank you so much to AHEC staff and all of the volunteers that came out to our Litter Cleanup event on September 16th! We collected 45 pounds of trash on the Auraria Campus in two hours. The most common items found were cigarette butts (over 300!), fast food wrappers, and plastic bags.
