Wisconsin Lutheran College, a four-year liberal arts college affiliated with the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod, has about 780 students enrolled in a two-semester academic year and awards the Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science degrees with liberal arts and professional majors and several pre-professional programs.
Beyond the technical and economic advantages of the solar electric system, students and staff gain a source of well being, knowing that their campus is committed to a clean, green, renewable source for a portion of its energy needs. The system is embedded in the curriculum and brings to life the practices and teaching in the classroom. Implementing environmental stewardship through this project builds upon the school's reputation as a progressive educational leader.
