PUEBLO — Officials at CSU Pueblo say the campus is the first university in Colorado to reach zero net electric efficiency, which means all of its academic buildings will use solar power.

The campus will use 22 acres to build the Solar Project.

It was made possible through a partnership with Black Hills Energy, Johnson Controls, and Capital Dynamics to help reduce carbon dioxide.

"It feels great. We are doing with the presidents initiatives are moving forward with the board of governors as they are here today to help promote this so it was a great time for the university," Cason said.

The project is part of CSU Pueblo's Vision 2028 initiative to improve the university.
