Solar powered fountain built by students at California Lutheran University
We’ve come across quite a few applications for solar energy before; so many that we’ve just lost count. Here’s one that has left a smile on our faces. What could get better and greener than a jolly good fountain powered by the sun! Built by the students of California Lutheran University, this fountain on the Thousand Oaks campus, south of Memorial Parkway between the Ahmanson Science Center and E building was built with a 245-watt module donated for the project. The fountain uses a handcrafted waterwheel too. And this isn’t the first time some green landscaping has been sown at the CLU. A community garden was planted in November by faculty, staff and students, while the CLU was also titled a climate action leader for participating in a voluntary greenhouse gas reporting program back in 2009.
We hope to see a greener tomorrow sprout out of the California Lutheran University soon!
