Urbana University dedicated new solar panels Friday morning. The university will use the 500 kilowatt solar display to power parts of the campus.
It is the largest solar array on a southwest Ohio college campus.
University leaders said there are 2,000 panels, and will provide one-fifth of the school’s energy needs.
They said the panels are expected to save around $2 million during its 30-year lifespan.
The panels are located near the football field.
