Johns Hopkins University has launched its first solar energy initiative, adding about 2,900 solar panels on seven buildings across its Baltimore campuses.

The solar panels are expected to produce about 960,000 kilowatt-hours of power the first year — enough electricity to power about 100 homes — and will advance the university’s efforts to reduce its carbon footprint.  The solar energy program is expected to reduce the university’s greenhouse gas emissions by about 1.2 million pounds annually, according to the school’s Office of Sustainability.
