Allan Hancock College is continuing its efforts to create a more sustainable campus by installing solar panel canopies above parking lots at the college’s Santa Maria campus.
The college partnered with San Francisco-based ForeFront Power to develop a 2.4 megawatt solar energy system that contains 6,000 solar panels installed across multiple parking canopies located in parking lots 1, 2, 4, 8 and 10.
