Solar Photovoltaic System at Kroon Hall
One initiative that is helping Yale to achieve its aggressive greenhouse gas emission eduction goal is the installation of solar photovoltaics systems on buildings across campus. Visible at Kroon Hall, is a 105 Kilowatt solar system which produces approximately 20,000 kilowatt hours a year, which is equivalent to powering approximately 2 homes in Connecticut. Another solar feature is the solar hot water system that is incorporated into the south facade of the building. These evacuated solar hot water tubes efficiently produce all of the hot water needs of the building.
