Forty schools will receive $250,000 in program funding to install solar panels. To support the installation of the solar panels, energy efficient improvements will be implemented to reduce electricity consumption.
Remaining program funds will be applied to lighting upgrades, timers and building controls.

Solar technology produces electricity without burning fossil fuels during generation.
By using electricity generated from solar panels schools can help reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
