The UMD SUN Delegation seeks to expand solar at UMD, whether through installations, subscriptions, or solar purchases. Students from ANY major can be SUN Delegates. Their progress on solar development includes educational opportunities, raising funds, applying for technical assistance, and planning and executing projects including a 40 kW solar photovoltaic system on top of the Oakland (Aspen) Apartment building. SUN Delegates have also raised awareness and support for solar and gathered resources and tools to evaluate and prioritize future solar sites for campus.
Current SUN Delegates (2021 -2022)
- Riya Milan (Mechanical Engineering)
- Katie Hauer (Environmental Science and Interdisciplinary Studies)
