Monarch School of New England – Rochester, NH

158 panels on the roof of the Monarch School of New England produce electricity that powers the school and benefits their community.

Each year, their 47.4 kilowatt grid-tied solar electric system will generate roughly 50,374 kilowatt-hours of clean electricity, offsetting the equivalent of driving over 91,800 miles in gas powered car.

The Monarch School is a non-profit day school for students ages 5-21 with significant physical, medical, developmental, behavioral, and emotional disabilities. Based in Rochester, NH, they help students reach their greatest potential and be successful in the mainstream of everyday life.

Founded over forty-five years ago, they support students, families, and their community under the motto: “Unlimited possibilities for students with special needs.”

In 2018, students and staff worked to receive the Eco-Schools USA Bronze Award from the National Wildlife Federation.
