Lehigh University has begun construction on a new solar array at its Murray H. Goodman Campus, which will fully power the campus and offset 8% of the university’s grid electricity consumption.

The solar array will be located just south of Legacy Park and across from the Lewis Indoor Tennis Center. The university chose this location based on existing power infrastructure. As part of the project, it will introduce new landscaping between the field and the nearby residential community.

Bohler’s Lehigh Valley team provided site civil and consulting engineering design, permitting, and landscape architecture for the 7,100-panel array. Lehigh University is partnering with EDF Renewables, a leading renewable power producer and service provider, for this endeavor. The solar array aligns with the university’s Sustainability Strategic Plan 2030 and Climate Action Strategy, which aims for net carbon neutrality by 2040. It will contribute to cost savings, emission reductions, and increased energy efficiency. Learn more about this and other solar projects planned for Lehigh’s campus here.
