Solar Panels on Edberg-Olson Roof

Demonstrating the university’s ongoing commitment to sustainability and renewable energy, Temple has entered into a solar project partnership with Community Energy Inc., a clean energy company located in Wayne, Pa.

Completed in December 2013, the 4,500 SF, 63-kilowatt solar array installed on the south-facing roof of Temple's Edberg-Olson Hall is the first solar project of its kind at a college or university within the city of Philadelphia. The system is owned and operated by Community Energy Inc. 

Edberg-Olson Hall, located at 10th and Diamond Streets, offers an ideal location for solar because of its visibility from the SEPTA regional rail lines which run behind the facility. The solar installation will reinforce the role of Temple's facilities as a living learning laboratory.
