UT to get $1.13 million grant from NASA for new facility

The University of Toledo announced Friday that it will be receiving a $1.13 million grant from NASA to build a solar panel testing and certification facility.

The Lucas County Commissioners have also pledged to give $100,000 to the project, from the county s economic development fund.

The facility will test the power, efficiency, and safety of solar panels from throughout the Midwest, and will be one of the few such facilities in the country.

University officials said the facility will bolster Toledo s image as a center for the research of solar energy.

"This will help to create a brighter future for us, in more ways than one," U.S. Rep. Marcy Kaptur, (D.. Toledo) said, while announcing the grant with UT President Lloyd Jacobs.
