University Enterprise Labs – 384 kW

Project Name:   University Enterprise Labs
Project Size:   384.6 kW
Panels:   938
Location:   Minneapolis, MN
Commissioned:   2017

IPS Solar installed this 384.6kW Photovoltaic solar electric energy system, located at 1000 Westgate Drive, to offset the electricity load for University Enterprise Labs. UEL is a collaborative research center that houses several medical and life-science companies along with some university departments. The system produces about 480,750 kWh of electricity on average per year, about half of the building’s usage.

Producing 480,750kWh of electricity annually from coal emits about 720,000 pounds of carbon dioxide. Preventing this much carbon dioxide from being released to the atmosphere is equivalent to adding 240 acres of trees to our forests. Over a 30-year span, IPS expects this system will offset 21,600,000 pounds or 10,800 tons of carbon dioxide.
