By end of the year, with the completion of 22,374 pieces of solar modules being installed across 90 buildings, solar carports and ground mounted system within the campus grounds, USM expects most of the energy supplied to its campuses to be clean and renewable. The solar system will be able to generate power for 63.73% of its peak power demand.
