Instilling Respect for the Environment

 

The solar installation at Chase Collegiate School, a private day school educating students in Pre-K through grade 12, consists of 294 solar panels mounted on the roof of the Upper School building. The array supplies approximately 40 percent of the total electrical needs of the Upper School building.  

 

The business manager of Chase Collegiate School notes that this array is consistent with Chase’s values to preserve the environment and find alternatives to traditional electricity generation. 

 

Chase Collegiate School has a long history of energy conservation and environmental responsibility. Construction at Chase has consistently been progressive, creative, and formulated with the best interests of the students and the environment in mind. Additionally, the faculty has demonstrated its support for the environment either through structured groups, such as the Green Team, or individual pursuits. As the school states on its website, Chase hopes to instill in its students the necessity of environmental responsibility and the personal reward that results from making green decisions, however small, every day.

 

Towards this end, Chase is utilizing information from the photovoltaic system to educate students in the classroom, teaching them about the importance of clean energy.
