A variety of projects are already underway at UT Health Science Center. These projects include:
Environmental Health and Safety
Information Management and Services
Help UT Health Science Center and the community become a cleaner, more environmentally friendly place. Besides making an important difference on the health of our environment, many of these ideas will save the Health Science Center money, or help you decrease your own utility bills!
Are you a ‘Go-Green’ newbie? Start with the simplest and least expensive ways to go green by looking for the green circle icon . For those of you ready to take the next step, look for the intermediate blue-square symbol –- these steps might cost a few dollars or take a little more time, but utility savings generally make the payback quick!

Campus Solar Installations
The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio is committed to sustainability and the future of renewable energy use in San Antonio. The HSC has two solar installations, the South Texas Research Facility and the Joe R. and Teresa Lozano Long Campus.
Joe R. and Teresa Lozano Long Campus System
The 131Kw photovoltaic system on the Long Campus system consists of 280 solar panels located on the roof of the Medical School and 240 panels located on the car park structure in Parking Lot #2. Electricity produced by these arrays enters the grid tied to the distribution system in the Academic and Administration Building and will offset the traditionally produced energy consumed by the HSC. The project was entirely funded by a grant through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act totaling $774,953 and a rebate totaling $200,000 from CPS Energy.
Please visit http://www.uthscsa.edu/facilities/prjpro/photovoltaic.asp for additional information.
The Texas Solar Kiosk sites offers real time updates on the energy saved daily, monthly and cumulatively on the two solar installations. Additionally the site provides information on pollutants avoided such as carbon dioxide, nitrogen oxides and sulfur dioxide.

South Texas Research Facility (STRF) Systems
The solar panels connected to the STRF complements the cutting edge research occurring in this facility and consist of 416 panels on the roof and 342 panels on the carport in the adjacent parking lot. The solar installation is funded by a grant from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act awarded through State Energy Conservation Office and a rebate from CPS Energy.
