Sustainability Problem and Proposed Solution: 

Like all of the campuses in the UC system, UCSC is under a mandate to achieve carbon neutrality by 2025. This is a daunting challenge, which will require not only reductions in carbon emissions but also a major shift to renewable energy resources. About half of the campus’s present electricity demand comes from the new, natural gas cogeneration plant. A future campus PV system will require extensive storage capability if it is to make a major reduction in greenhouse gas emissions
