In 2018, UCSB completed a project increased its onsite renewable energy generating capacity tenfold through a multi-site Power Purchase Agreement (PPA). UCSB now has over 6.2 megawatts (MW) of on-site solar capacity, which generates more than one-third of the campus’s peak electrical demand. Together, these solar installations generate over 40% of our campus demand on a peak day and will provide approximately 15% of UCSB’s annual electricity needs through clean, on-campus power production.
