UNI receives national grant for solar panels

Posted:

CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -- The U.S. Department of Transportation has awarded the University of Northern Iowa a grant of more than 700,000 dollars.

UNI will use the money to install solar panels at the Multimodal Facility on campus. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation the panels will provide enough energy to power the entire building. The panels will be hooked into the campus power grid, so any extra energy collected during the day can be used by other buildings as well.
