Drone Footage of ECE Building Solar Panel Installation

Watch to view aerial footage of the solar panel installations on the ECE building's roof!

The installation gets the ECE ILLINOIS building closer to its ultimate goal of net-zero energy. The panels on the building are expected to contribute roughly 1/5 of the electricity needs of the building. However, the benefits are much more wide-reaching. The energy generated at each and every panel is immediately converted to "plug and power" grid-ready AC electricity helping the UI campus reach its ambitious goal of 30% reduction in energy emissions from 2008 to 2020.
