Pitt’s new solar energy partnership is among the largest in Western Pennsylvania

Construction has begun on a new 20-megawatt solar farm that will supply 100% of its electricity to the University of Pittsburgh for the next two decades. Built on 68 acres near the Pittsburgh International Airport, Vesper's Gaucho Solar project is expected to be online in 2023 and will be one of the largest solar projects in Western Pennsylvania once operational, with about 55,000 solar panels in use.
