This proposal report examines two issues, namely UC Merced’s effort to achieve its net zero energy 2020 Triple Zero Commitment and the lack of shade on campus. The paper works to solve these issues through the construction of a shaded walkway that is roofed with solar panels. The goal of this report is to make it clear why solving these issues is vital and to show how a shaded walkway can work to resolve the lack of shade on campus and help achieve UC Merced’s net zero energy of 2020 Triple Zero Commitment.
