: Sigma Chi fraternity house
2015 Application Submission
The Solar Powering Sigma Chi grant aims to make Cal Sigma Chi the first fraternity house in California to derive electric power from solar energy and provide more sustainable housing for some 40 Berkeley students. It will set a precedent of sustainability not only within the Greek community but also the greater Berkeley community at large.
Provide more sustainable housing for some 40 Berkeley undergraduates on an annual basis. Contribute to the University's effort to meet its goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Serve as an excellent source of publicity for both the University and the Greek community. Set the framework such that other Greek houses may take up similar projects in the future.
