Trautman Associates collaborated with Solar Liberty on the “Solar Strand,” part of a statewide clean energy initiative. The 3,200-panel photovoltaic array—one of the largest ground-mounted photovoltaic arrays in New York State—is located at the main entrance to the University at Buffalo’s North Campus and provides enough electrical power for hundreds of campus apartments.

The “Solar Strand” will generate enough clean, renewable power to avoid as much as 400 tons of harmful greenhouse gases emissions every year, and will serve as a natural classroom for UB students and for local K-12 students.
