Solar power at Hayden: Ribbon-cutting by President Hockfield 11/14, 3:30pm

On Monday, November 14, 2005 at 3:30 p.m. there will be a celebration of MIT’s latest solar power installation at Hayden Memorial Library. The MIT community is invited to join President Susan Hockfield and Director of Libraries Ann Wolpert for an official ribbon-cutting, remarks and refreshments. The event will be held outside the Hayden Memorial Library entrance on the first-floor of Building 14.

The solar panel installation on Hayden’s roof is the third and largest on MIT’s campus. MIT installations on the roofs of Hayden, the Student Center and Building N52 were part of the MIT Community Solar Power Initiative funded by the Massachusetts Renewable Energy Trust.
