THE UNIVERSITY'S GREEN ROOF

Tomorrow, the City of Fort Lauderdale will unveil its first totally green roof at Florida Atlantic University's Higher Education Complex building in the downtown.

The solar panel initiative includes 240 photovoltaic panels and will produce 50,000 watts of energy. The savings from the building's electricity production will be used to fund the Sun Fund Scholarship, believed to be the country's only scholarship literally funded by the sun.
