Additionally, FSU is home to an Off-Grid Zero Emission Building, designed and constructed to operate exclusively on solar energy. The building is a graduate-style flat with an office that serves as an energy-efficient model and prototype for developing and implementing cutting-edge, alternative energy technologies.
“We’re thrilled to work with the BYOSolar team on this unique relationship to support Florida State Athletics,” says Caleb Swann, general manager for LEARFIELD’s Seminole Sports Properties, FSU Athletics’ multimedia rightsholder. “While supporting FSU, the BYOSolar sponsorship will showcase the significant advantage clean energy can provide to fans across the Sunshine State and throughout the region.”
