Students can see their green fee money at work, converting sunlight into energy. New solar panels have been installed on the roof of the Challenger STEM Learning Center.
Danny West is quoted as saying about the newly installed solar panel array:
“This conversion of sunlight to electricity occurs without moving parts, is silent and pollution free in its operation. It is a renewable energy source that will supply the estimated electrical load for teaching within the Challenger Center,” said Danny West, facilities planning and management.
