3) Solar Energy.
A university uses 100 kWh per building per day. They aim to meet 30% of this need using solar energy. The university owns 155 buildings; of these, they have 75 buildings with south-facing roofs on which solar panels can be installed. The average area of the south-facing portion of these roofs is 50 m2. Assume that, on average, a 1 m2 solar panel produces 1 kWh per day. Can the university meet their aim?
