The University of Alabama at Birmingham is now home to the largest solar-energy system in the city of Birmingham. The 100-panel system, installed by Birmingham’s Vulcan Solar Power, sits atop the UAB Campus Recreation Center and can be seen from Red Mountain and many UAB and non-UAB buildings.

“This is our first commercial-scale solar installation,” said Julie Price, UAB Sustainability Coordinator. "The visibility of the system cultivates a recognition and inquiry from the community that aligns directly with our mission to generate public engagement. It is a great pinnacle project that will open the door for us to engage people about solar energy and other facets of sustainability as well.”
