Support Renewable Energy at UNCW!

UNCW’s Student Government Association and The Office of Sustainability have provided this opportunity for YOU to engage in creating a cleaner, healthier and more equitable future for all! Many students, faculty and staff, departments, and organizations university-wide have been working to implement clean energy on the UNCW campus, and now YOU can  be a  part  of  the team helping  UNCW  “run on  the sun!” We aim to implement 200 kilowatts (kW) of photovoltaic (solar) energy through solar panels. This proposed amount of energy is enough to charge 17,241 smartphones (meaning almost  every  UNCW student  could  fully  charge their  smartphone by the sun!) 

By implementing solar energy, UNCW will be investing in a sustainable source of power and resiliency for our campus and community. Having an alternative, accessible energy source ensures the preservation of campus resources such as temperature-dependent research and imperative operations like food and critical lighting. 

Why Donate?

Did you know the UNCW student body identified implementing renewable and clean energy on campus as their number one Sustainability goal in a survey? This long-term project is helping take steps toward making that possible! Our  initial  goal is to raise $2,500 with TealStarter, and every, single gift matters Even a $5 gift will make a difference in helping us reach our goal! Plus, when you support our project, your gift will also count toward Like No Other: The Campaign for UNCW

Not only will this project reduce energy use and create resiliency, but this initiative will also provide research and applied learning opportunities for our community! We also believe the visibility of this project will inspire Seahawks to learn about Sustainability and engage with topics that impact their own day-to-day lives. 

Thank you for your support!
