“We invite contributions to fund more solar panels. This is a meaningful way you can contribute to EKU's leadership in alternative energy, while also funding scholarships. We intend to engage alumni who contribute in an ongoing dialogue with professors and students around alternative energy. A compelling aspect of solar panels is that they last for 50 years. A solar panel scholarship, is, in effect, an endowed scholarship which will last for many years. EKU has available land located around campus, and adjacent to campus. Wouldn't it be a powerful statement to the community and state if much of that land were covered with solar panels?”
Dr. Gary Booth, EKU class of 1962
Join us as we grow the EKU solar panel array and its impact on the Campus Beautiful. All contributions to the Solar Energy Fund will be used to purchase, install, and maintain solar panels that provide energy to EKU. In turn, the savings realized from these panels will fund Photon Fellows. Our first goal is to add 100+ panels to the Science Building array. Give now!
