Teaching the Benefits of Clean Energy

 

Consisting of 72 solar panels, the 12.60-kilowatt solar array at Taft School is mounted on the roof of the school’s Logan Field House. It supplies approximately seven percent of the electricity required by the school and yields data that the school plans to use to teach students about renewable energy. The data comes from a real-time, on-site data monitoring system that is connected to the solar array and measures the array’s power output, cumulative energy production (kilowatt hours) and other information. This data is made available on the school’s website.

 

According to the business manager at Taft School, Taft is committed to renewable energy initiatives. He noted that the school participates in the “Green Cup Challenge” competition amongst private schools, and its solar installation will help focus the students, faculty and staff on energy use and the role that renewable initiatives play in preserving resources and the environment.

 

The Taft School solar array was installed by Pioneer Valley PhotoVoltaics.
