Solar Array Powers Romeoville Campus

Published: February 11, 2021.

Lewis University started the month of February more efficiently as a solar array began operating on the Lewis University Romeoville campus. The solar power system is expected to supply the 410-acres campus with approximately 1.2 million kWh of its annual electricity, providing significant savings on power costs to the university as well as other environmental benefits. 

The system is designed with the expectation that it will provide transformative experiences for Lewis University students as they learn and live in the solar-powered space. Electrical engineering, computer science and environmental science students will gain valuable field experience as they have access to the solar array to learn the operations of the system and conduct research.

A dedication ceremony is expected to be scheduled after winter transitions to spring. 

Lewis University is an innovative and forward-thinking Catholic university offering market-relevant undergraduate and graduate programs to 6,300 students. Sponsored by the De La Salle Christian Brothers, Lewis University is nationally recognized for preparing intellectually engaged, ethically grounded, globally connected and socially responsible graduates.
