Walters Hall

A number of alternative energy technologies are being used in Walters Hall. A “green” roof and photovoltaic panels are both located on the lower roof of this building.

The green roof is a vegetated cover that aids in controlling storm water run-off and mitigating urban heat-island effects. It conserves building energy, reduces sound transmission, and creates a pleasant, aesthetic environment that can even provide wildlife habitat.

The 15.48 Kilowatt photovoltaic (PV) array mounted on the roof of Walters Hall produces approximately 1.5% of the electric power used by the College each year.

The Department of Paper and Bioprocess Engineering is located in Walters Hall, which is devoted to teaching and research in bioproducts, bioenergy, paper science, paper engineering, and allied fields. The building contains a semi-commercial paper mill for educational use.
