Students and graduates from Louisiana Tech University’s College of Engineering and Science have teamed up with a local solar energy company to develop innovative ways of producing clean energy in homes and businesses across the country.

Louisiana Tech alumni Matthew Macaluso and Connor Beech as well as current senior engineering students are collaborating with Solar Energy Supply of West Monroe to develop a new line of solar “smart panels,” which will optimize the amount of sunlight received to each panel, effectively increasing efficiency by up to 20 percent, while reducing the effects of shading and undesirable roof angles.
