Solar panels on Fitzpatrick Hall of Engineering

A 10kW flexible thin-film solar array and monitoring system was recently installed on the roof of the University of Notre Dame’s Fitzpatrick Hall of Engineering. The light-weight flexible panels lie flat and are attached directly to the surface of the roof with an adhesive.

Connected directly to the University’s power grid, the array will help meet Fitzpatrick’s electricity demand, supplying an estimated 12,000 kilowatt-hours of electricity annually.
