Dauphin Island Sea Lab – Campus Solar Array

October 2, 2021 - January 15, 2022

Virtual Event Virtual Event

The Dauphin Island Sea Lab is a biological field research station for the State of Alabama’s Marine Environmental Sciences Consortium, serving 22 of the state’s public and private universities and colleges. The DISL campus encompasses 30-plus acres with 39 buildings, seven (7) of those are powered by solar energy. Three of the seven solar PVs were added within the last 8 months as part of a Energy Savings Contract (ESCO) through Southland Energy.

The decision to add solar, and continue expanding solar capabilities, was based on: 1) the need to reduce our energy consumption expense because less than one-third of DISL’s fiscal budget is through state appropriation, and power is the greatest expense we face; and 2) DISL is firmly committed to wise stewardship of not only fiscal resources, but also our environmental resources and supports the use of renewable energy sources on our campus.
