One of the largest solar photovoltaic (PV) projects in the nation was recently completed. The 1.06 MW solar array is an on-site generating system at Butte-Glenn Community College, and is the second largest community college solar installation in the U.S.

"Solar saves money, improves the environment, and provides a wonderful opportunity to train students on environmental stewardship and alternative energy." --Diana Van Der Ploeg, Butte College president
