Oxy’s $6.8-million, 1-megawatt ground-mounted solar array is one of the largest of its kind in Los Angeles. It generates approximately 11 percent of the College's annual electrical usage and save an estimated $250,000 a year. We believe it’s one of the largest arrays in the country on a small college campus. What makes it unique is that two-thirds of the array's 4,886 panels are being installed on a southwest-facing campus hillside. With panels mounted just 2-3 feet above the ground, the low-profile array will hug the topography of the slope. Photo from November 27, 2012. (Photo by Marc Campos, Occidental College Photographer)
