Central Park School for Children staff, students, families, and neighboring businesses are working in partnership with NC GreenPower and SECU to build a 5KW Solar Array on the campus of Central Park School for Children Middle School Campus in Durham, NC. Our solar array will feed energy into the grid to provide green energy for businesses and homes in downtown Durham and produce cost savings for the school.
What are we going to do with the cost savings? With the money that we save from the panels students will manage a portfolio of microloans that fund renewable energy projects around the world. We are looking forward to integrating learning about solar energy in preparation for our panels, as our panels are installed, and as we monitor and maintain their use.
