Hampshire College

Amherst, Mass. - With a Groundbreaking Ceremony this morning attended by Massachusetts state and local officials and industry partners, Hampshire College has begun installing 15,000 solar panels on approximately 19 acres of its 840-acre campus, toward producing 100 percent of campus electricity from on-site renewable energy on an annualized basis. By its research, Hampshire is the first US residential college to go 100% solar.
