Kaitlin Ballard ’12 discussed the College’s solar installations and the benefits it brings to the community

In 2019 and 2020, Naperville expanded its Renewable Energy Program to provide more incentives to residential and commercial customers who go green. Those moves have resulted in massive growth in solar energy installations across town. While commercial installations have been more stagnant, some are taking advantage.

Kaitlin Ballard ’12, sustainability coordinator at North Central, interviewed with Naperville Community Television (NCTV17), where she discussed how the College has maxed out its rebate for its largest solar project—the grid on top of Residence Hall/Recreation Center.

“North Central College has openly embraced solar. We have four projects on campus,” said Ballard.
