Solar Farm

The solar farm, situated in Antioch’s South Campus, will produce enough power to offset the electrical consumption of our central geothermal plant.

The five-acre, one million watt solar Photo Voltaic (PV) solar farm includes a field of 3,300 solar panels adjacent to the Antioch Farm. 30% of our current campus power consumed comes from this 1 megawatt behind-the meter field installed solar farm. The solar farm will produce 1.2 million kilowatt hours of energy annually, enough power to offset the electrical consumption of our Central Geothermal Plant.

The farm is augmented by 80% renewable energy purchases through the College's local utility in the Village of Yellow Springs.
