Solar Power Coming to The COAST
“The NC GreenPower Solar grant will provide students with an awesome opportunity to work with solar technology and data collection in a real and meaningful way," Clean Energy Technology Instructor Dr. Daniel Richardson said. "Students will be able to analyze power production in real time and use that information to inform their own decisions about projects in the Clean Energy classes. Being able to see the technology and work with it first hand is a powerful learning tool and I can’t wait to share it with the students.”
NC Greenpower officials say the solar PV system will also have an energy impact by producing enough renewable energy to power the school's main office. You can find more information about this pilot program at www.ncgreenpower.org/solar-
NC Greenpower is matching the COAST's fundraising for the solar PV up to $10,000. The school has until the end of September to raise the funds. Anyone who would like to make an online donation can visit this fundraising page: http://my.ncgreenpower.
The State Employees Credit Union Foundation is also donating $15,000 to the COAST to increase the size of the solar installation.
