Solar Research

It’s called the “Sunshine State,’ but figures show Florida is only thirteenth in the nation when it comes to the solar power capacity that’s been installed around the state. USF is trying to change that, with ground-breaking research and solar installations at both the Tampa and Saint Petersburg campuses. We look at the work, which includes some student-driven initiatives, on University Beat on WUSF 89.7.
