The Division of Operations sponsors regular tours of on-campus sustainability features for members of the GW community, including a combined electricity and heat production system that powers Science and Engineering Hall.
George Washington University (GW) is providing rooftop space on five campus buildings for solar photovoltaic panels that will increase solar electricity in Washington, D.C. The panels are designed to have a capacity of 497 kWAC (579 kWDC), with the clean energy generated by the system reducing greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to removing roughly 100 cars from the road each year they operate.
Solar panels have been installed on the rooftops of five Foggy Bottom Campus buildings: Funger and Duquès Halls, the Charles E. Smith Center, Monroe Hall and Hall of Government, Lisner Auditorium and the Media and Public Affairs Building. The project is part of a larger university commitment to reduce its carbon footprint through energy efficiency initiatives and clean energy purchases. Specifically, this project will increase renewable energy production on campus and reduce electricity expenses at GW.
