WATCH: A Day at the Vanderbilt I Solar Farm

Did you know Vanderbilt University is completely carbon neutral? Watch as Class of 2024’s Ari Sasson takes us behind the scenes of the Vanderbilt I Solar Farm, which is providing clean energy to the electrical grid. 

The renewable energy generated from the Vanderbilt I Solar Farm offsets approximately 70 percent of the university’s annual indirect greenhouse gas emissions from electricity purchased through Nashville Electric Service, or the equivalent of enough power to help serve more than 6,000 homes for one year. 

Vanderbilt University will further offset its carbon footprint by investing in the development of solar energy projects to expand access to clean energy in the Southeast. A new, multiyear collaboration with Clearloop builds on Vanderbilt’s commitment to powering its campus entirely through renewable energy and maintaining carbon neutrality.
