In June 2008, a solar thermal hot water system was installed on 3 Sacramento Street, an FAS undergraduate co-op dorm.

The project was funded as a prize for HGCI’s 2007 Sustainability Pledge. For each person that took the pledge, $1.50 was put in a fund for an on-campus renewable energy system and 3 Sacramento’s solar thermal system won the funding.

The 2 flat plate panels will provide at least 20% of the hot water used by the 20 students who live in the co-op.
