Vulcan Solar Power has secured a contract with the University of Alabama at Birmingham to build the school's first commercial-scale solar installation.


More than 100 solar panels will go on the roof of UAB's Campus Recreation Center as part of the $120,000 contract. Work is expected to begin in mid June and construction will take no longer than two weeks.


 “We are excited to be a part of Alabama’s renewable energy community and are honored to be chosen to install UAB’s first commercial-size rooftop solar system,” said Rob Ozols, CEO of Vulcan Solar. “Our mission is to provide Alabamians with reliable and affordable solar energy while also helping Alabama join in on the explosive job-growth that is taking place in the solar industry across the country. And what better way to kick-start all of this than by partnering with UAB on this ground-breaking project.”
