Saint Mary’s students to talk about solar panel initiative

WINONA, Minn. — Students raising money for the Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota Solar Panel Initiative will give a public presentation at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 2, in Watters Hall.

Saint Mary’s students are hoping for a surge of supporters — and $20,000 — to help bring solar panels to the Winona campus.

According to student organizer Conner Ellinghuysen, the addition of a 16.4-kilowatt system will reduce the university’s carbon footprint, save the university money, and provide educational experiences for students.
