Valdosta State installs solar panels on campus

Posted: Updated:

VALDOSTA, Ga. (AP) - Valdosta State University will use solar power to run its library.

University officials held a ceremony last week to mark the installation of a 10-kilowatt solar canopy behind the library.

The Valdosta Daily Times reports the new panels should provide enough energy to run the equivalent of a computer lab, though it's a small amount compared to the university's overall energy use.

VSU President William McKinney called the installation a "first step in sustainability."
