Duke University

Project Details

  • Location – Duke University – Durham, NC
  • System Size – 919 kW
  • Number of Panels – 2,554
  • Estimated Annual Production – 1.3 Million kWh

Green State Power designed a unique solar canopy for Duke University that sits atop a seven-story parking garage.  The panels, above the deck’s top level, provide 1.3 million kilowatt hours of electricity annually, which covers the needs of the garage and puts excess energy back into the grid to power other buildings at Duke.

The panels also eliminate 430 metric tons of carbon from Duke’s footprint each year, holds about 1,900 vehicles, uses LED lights, and captures rainwater to reuse for irrigation around Duke’s campus.

Green State Power is proud to have completed this project with Duke University!
