The University of Delaware, a pioneer and continuous leaders in the field of photovoltaics, in partnership with Standard Solar, Inc., is in the midst of the largest single rooftop installation to date in the First State.

In August, UD and Standard Solar announced its plan to outfit three buildings at the University’s Newark campus with solar panels, the Delaware Field House at the David Nelson Athletic Complex, Clayton Hall on the Laird Campus and 461 Wyoming Road.

The installation at the Delaware Field House, located off of South College Avenue, is the largest project and is nearly halfway complete. The site will be open for media availability on Tues., Nov. 9, from 12:30-1:30p.m. Also, Scott Wiater, president of Standard Solar, and Steve Hegedus, of the Delaware Energy Institute, will be available to discuss the project and UD’s research with solar energy.

All interested media should meet in the lobby of the Field House.
