A brief description of on-site renewable electricity generating devices :

LMU was an early adopter of solar electric amongst colleges and universities, installing our first systems in 2003.
In 2003 Loyola Marymount University installed $4.5 million worth of solar panels on three of its largest buildings - Gersten Pavilion, University Hall and the Von der Ahe Library. It was the largest solar electric rooftop system at any university in the world and the largest system in Southern California at the time.

We now have total project generation on campus of roughly 1,334,161.00 kilowatt hours annually.
