West Campus Solar Initiative Logo

Please join us in reducing the carbon footprint of the University of Montana as we move towards our 2020 carbon neutrality goals. By donating to the West Campus Solar Initiative (WCSI) you will be investing in the installation of the largest photovoltaic array on campus to date. More donations grow the array and shrink our carbon footprint!

About WCSI

WCSI stands for “West Campus Solar Initiative” and was created with the help of the University of Montana Foundation to help raise matching funds for a $30,000 KRELF project proposal in which the ultimate goal is to install a 42 kW array at West Campus.

The development of the West Campus Solar array will benefit the University in multiple ways. First, it will further the University’s goal of the UM 2020 strategic plan. Second, it will reduce yearly operating costs for West Campus. Third, will provide a valuable education and training site for students interested in careers in renewable energy systems.

If you would like know more about “UM 2020” please visit the University of Montana's webpage for UM 2020: Building a University for the Global Century.

KRELF stands for “Kless Revolving Energy Loan Fund,” a student-initiated, student-funded loan program that supports energy and resource conservation projects on the University of Montana campus. Each semester since Fall 2009, UMontana students have supported KRELF with an opt‑out sustainability fee. The purpose of KRELF is to finance projects that promote resource conservation, waste reduction, and environmental projects at UMontana, as well as capture financial and energy savings and foster student involvement in sustainability efforts.
