Dozens of Syracuse University students living on south campus starting this fall will be getting their heat and hot water from the sun.  S-U has installed solar thermal panels on 20 buildings, which will serve 160 apartments.  

WAER's Max Brady talked with S-U Sustainability Division Project Analyst and Public Relations Coordinator Brooke Wears.

Wears says the panels will work when it’s cloudy, or snowy, and they're angled so the snow won't collect on them.     More information on the project is at sustainability.syr.edu.
