Bently Hall, Douglas Campus, Western Nevada College

Minden, Nevada

“This collaboration offers many benefits to the college. Economically, it makes sense for today and for the future. It allows the college to lower energy costs and reduce greenhouse gas emissions, while decreasing our demand for energy from the grid.”

Dan Neverett, Vice President, Finance & Administrative Services

Black Rock Solar installed a 49 kW ground-mounted array powering Bently Hall at Western Nevada College’s Minden campus.

This is Black Rock Solar’s third project with WNC, and was built concurrently with another 49 kilowatt array at the Carson City campus. These arrays bring the college’s total solar production to an impressive 402 kilowatts, providing over $50,000 in savings each year for the college.

Western Nevada College is one of the biggest consumers of renewable, environmentally friendly solar power in the Nevada higher education system.
