As part of PLNU’s commitment to sustainability, large-scale solar panel construction will soon begin on campus.

As with PLNU’s past solar projects, this one will be beautiful and will contribute to a cleaner, less-polluted campus. Panels be set up at seven additional locations around campus and will account for 600 kilowatts of power. This will reduce carbon dioxide emissions equal to removing over 2,000 cars from San Diego highways! The additional panels will contribute to PLNU’s existing 330-kilowatt system and will increase the percentage of energy from solar power to 58 percent (up from 35 percent) at peak production times.

Construction is expected to run from December to April.

Because of the considerable nature of this undertaking, we ask for forbearance and understanding from our Point Loma neighbors. Please contact Megan Ekard at (619) 849-2298 with any questions or concerns.

During these turbulent economic times, securing your financial future is more important than ever. If you want to ensure your family’s financial security now and in the future, a well-developed estate plan can help. As a service to our community, Point Loma Nazarene University is presenting free, informative, estate planning seminars. For several years, we have provided this complimentary service to alumni and friends of PLNU. We are pleased to extend this service, for the first time, to our local community. Enjoy a relaxing setting and find out, in simple terms, how a living trust works and how it will protect against probate, creditors, and taxes. We will also briefly discuss other tax-wise estate planning opportunities that may benefit you and your family. For more information about attending one of these seminars, please contact Sandy Liarakos at (619) 849-2992.
