Energy costs savings of $105,000 over the term of the PPA

Brief

Dynamic Energy installed a 212 kW solar system at Brandeis University, a Massachusetts-based private research university, in Waltham, Massachusetts. The system, atop the Goldfarb Library building, is expected to save Brandeis an estimated $105,000 in energy costs over the term of the Power Purchase Agreement (PPA).

The solar array will generate nearly 271,000 kWh of energy in its first year, enough to offset approximately 202 metric tons (445,334 pounds) of carbon dioxide, the equivalent of removing 43 cars from Massachusetts roads, or the amount of carbon sequestered by 238 acres of U.S. forest each year.

Renewable energy is a critical component of Brandeis’ commitment to social justice. By reducing the need for fossil energy, we help reduce our contribution to climate change and other environmental impacts that negatively affect the world’s most vulnerable communities the most.
