Before the 2014 policy, CSUB “Flipped the Switch” on its all-new solar panels in 2011. The $9.5 million project was paid for by SunEdison, part of a public-private partnership with 15 CSU campuses to build solar power projects.

The system also allows us to manage the irrigation during events to make sure the sprinklers are turned off.
