A solar/sustainable initiative is underway that is being facilitated through the University's partnership with AMERESCO to advance solar technology awareness on campus and throughout the community. Through this initiative solar installations are planned for Second Street Garage, Student Recreation Center, McClelland Hall, McClelland Park, Hillenbrand Aquatic Center, Red Rock Ag Center, Campus Ag Center, Controlled Environmental Ag Center, West Campus Ag Center, Ville Del Puente Res Hall, and Posada San Pedro Res Hall.

The UA Solar Initiative is a multi-building, campus wide project to provide green energy generation and advance solar technology awareness and education on campus and throughout the community.
The various installations utilize roof-top photo-voltaic arrays to directly convert sunlight into electricity. The installations at the Student Recreation Center and Hillandbrand Diving Center include Solar Thermal Arrays which collect thermal energy utilizing evacuated tube solar thermal collectors. This energy is used to provide over 20-30% of the energy necessary for heating the pools and offsets the use of natural gas heating.
