CSU-Pueblo first university in state to be 100% powered by solar energy

PUEBLO, Colo. (KRDO) -- Colorado State University-Pueblo is the first university in the state to reach net-zero efficiency by being 100% powered by solar energy.

The achievement was made possible because of a power-purchase agreement and a lease of around 22 acres of solar panels on the north side of campus.

Thursday, the university made moving to solar energy official through a ceremony.

Governor Jared Polis commended the university's strides towards sustainability.

The campus also recognized the groundbreaking of a brand new technology building, funded through the state.
