Western Illinois University's Horn Field Campus has gone "green" thanks to a gift from Western's Green Energy Team.

On Sept. 9, Western's Green Energy Team donated an off-grid, portable, solar energy generator to the Horn Field Campus.

The generator works to collect solar energy during the day, storing that energy, then converting it to electronic power to help power devices such as lights and telephones.
