Tours are open to Notre Dame students, faculty and staff only. Transportation will be provided for off-campus tours. Space is limited, so registration is required. Additional details will be provided upon registration and confirmation.
Owned and operated by Indiana and Michigan Power (I&M), a 20-megawatt St. Joseph Solar Farm sits on 210 acres of land that was formerly farmed by The Brothers of Holy Cross to feed students at Notre Dame. This is I&M's largest solar generating facility, containing nearly 58,000 First Solar Panels – enough panels to fill approximately 30 football fields – and providing enough energy to power ~2,700 homes annually. The University will support 40% of the renewable attributes of the facility. Join a representative from I&M for a tour and brief presentation about solar energy.
This event is about 1 hour and 40 minutes in length with a 20-minute drive each way and 1-hour tour/presentation.
