Bowie State University Celebrates Launch of 1.6 MW Solar Project
Alternative energy expands university's commitment to sustainability and green education


On May 21, 2018, Bowie State University and WGL Energy Systems (WGL Energy) celebrated the launch of a 1.6-megawatt solar power system. The solar power system spans throughout the campus that includes a solar canopy in parking lot D, the roofs of the Thurgood Marshall Library and the Leonidas S. James Physical Education Complex, and an open site near the Bulldog Stadium field. The new system is estimated to generate about 2 million kilowatt-hours each year, which is about 10 percent of the campus needs – further demonstrating the importance of sustainability and green education for Bowie State University.

WGL Energy owns and operates the system and the university will purchase the generated electricity. WGL Energy offers a Solar Electricity Supply Solution which includes a 20-year Solar Power Purchase Agreement (SPPA) for 100% of the electricity output from a new solar development for a fixed price that protects the organization from fluctuating energy prices. The balance of the electricity supply will come from a one-, two- or three-year WGL Energy Electricity Supply Agreement, with flexible options after that. Bowie State University, as a co-branded stakeholder of the solar facility, has direct involvement in the growth of renewable energy. This partnership supports the university’s sustainability goals with no up-front capital expenditures or ongoing maintenance costs.
