SOLAR PANEL UPDATES
226 Solar panels on the school roof. Installed by Ailey Solar.
Using renewable energy will not only save on electric bills, but is a benefit for the nearby community as well. Installing solar will help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and global warming. Rooftop solar will also promote the use of renewable energy in the immediate neighborhood.
