What's On Your Roof?

"108 solar panels are on ours," says a Noble Hotel window panel display to passers by. Yesterday, NOLS hosted Celebrating Our Past by Sustaining Our Future, a gathering to celebrate the unveiling of the solar array on NOLS Rocky Mountain's Noble Hotel. Despite cloudy skies and a thunderstorm, the panels did their job.

This clean energy production allows NOLS take a big leap forward toward our strategic goal of a 30 percent carbon footprint reduction before 2020. This 24.8-kilowatt array, along with the 14.3-kilowatt array on NOLS Rocky Mountain, will help NOLS serve as a model of self-reliance and sustainability—concepts that lie at the heart of the NOLS curriculum.

Check out news coverage of the event below, and visit our Environmental Sustainability and Stewardship webpage for a link to realtime data on Noble Hotel energy use and generation.
