Solar array on the roof of Clemons Library.

April 22 is Earth Day, and the Library is celebrating its contribution to a carbon-neutral future. To find out more, check out the Cavalier Daily article “U.Va. and William & Mary provides updates on their joint climate action plan” and check UVA’s Renewable Energy Tracker to see how UVA is bringing the sun into libraries and other buildings with the goal of achieving carbon neutrality by 2030!

Currently, two solar arrays are helping to power the library system — 325 solar panels on the roof of Clemons Library and 470 on the roof of the Ivy Stacks storage and retrieval facility.
