Fryeburg Academy - Solar ElectricTwo kilowatts of solar electric panels are lighting up Fryeburg Academy thanks to a system recently installed by ReVision.

The Conway Daily Sun reported how the project came to be:

The genesis for this project began with the students in the class of 2009, led by Logan Cline, who launched the first year’s efforts to raise funds while also raising community awareness of the need to conserve energy on campus.

This was followed in 2010 by senior class president Kenedi Hall, who also approached TransCanada Energy for a significant grant to augment their efforts. Together, over $10,000 was raised to fund the initial project, and fund-raising is continuing to add more panels at a future date …

The system is designed both as an energy producer and ongoing teaching tool. Located in the academy’s dedicated science facility, students will be able to monitor and learn about the system as part of the day-to-day curriculum.

The 2KW system is expected to produce over 2,829 kWh of clean electricity each year, offsetting more than 3,500 lbs of C02 emissions!
