Net-Zero Energy

Solar panels

To further our sustainability education goals, we aim to become a net-zero energy farm that serves as a model for small farms across the state. We utilize Solar Thermal energy to heat our seeding greenhouse, and plan to connect our Solar Photovoltaic array to the grid to generate electricity on-farm in the future.

Many thanks to the many students, faculty, and staff who have contributed to this project, and special thanks for funding from the Provost Academic Plan Grant (2017) and Social and Environmental Sustainability Small Grant from the Institute of the Environment (2022).
