HBS installs solar panels
Harvard Business School (HBS) has been awarded a grant for up to $172,800 from the Massachusetts Technology Collaborative (MTC) to install photovoltaic solar energy panels on its Shad Fitness Center, the first solar panels anywhere in the University. The panels, which will be delivering environmentally friendly energy to HBS by October 2003, will reduce the Shad Center’s electricity cost by 3 to 5 percent, estimates Frank Hayes, HBS deputy chief of operations. HBS is one of 13 Massachusetts organizations and businesses to receive grants from the state’s Renewable Energy Trust through MTC.
