Renewable Energy at Harvard Forest

Harvard Forest solar panels

A new renewable energy source was recently commissioned at Harvard Forest. In mid-July 2007, Moss Hollow, LLC (Lunenburg, MA) completed installation of a 10KW solar array next to the new Facilities Barn. Support for this $100,000 project included grants from the Massachusetts Technology Collaborative Small Renewables Initiative and Harvard University's Faculty of Arts and Sciences Dean's Fund; the balance was covered by the HU Green Campus Loan Fund. In the three months since the array began functioning, the system has generated more than 4,000 kWh of electricity.

Richard Hale Goodwin - Memorial Reflection

My first reflection on Dick's accomplishments is that his career and life were so diverse, so wide-reaching and so darn long that few people came to know more than even a small percentage of his greatness. An excerpt by David Foster, Director of Harvard Forest, former student and friend. Read the entire memorial reflection.
