It’s hard to miss the new structure that has sprung up in the fine arts center parking lot, with the aim of increasing campus energy sustainability.

The solar carport, which includes two electric car charging stations, came from the efforts of Bethel alumni Richard and Donna Zerger of McPherson, with the support of nine other alumni and friends.

It’s also part of Bethel’s work toward joining a nationwide movement, called the American College and University Presidents’ Climate Commitment, to address climate change through high-visibility actions on campuses.
