This summer, O’Dowd is installing a campus-wide sustainable solar power system!
We estimate that in our first year the solar panels will generate 500,700 kilowatt hours, which translates into 391 tons of avoided greenhouse gases.
That offsets emissions from almost 40,000 gallons of gasoline OR 392,196 pounds of burned coal!
We will sequester the same amount of carbon as almost 6,000 tree seedlings grown for 10 years OR 435 acres of forest in one year!
We are proud to be in kinship with creation, doing our part to protect our common home. Go Dragons!
