The completed systems, which include more than 8,200 ground-mounted panels, will provide enough power to reduce the schools’ electricity bills and allow them to lock in fixed rates of electricity for the lifetime of the system, which is typically more than 25 years. In addition to providing affordable, clean energy to Caroline County schools, the solar arrays will help serve as an educational tool for students. Each school will be equipped with highly visible monitoring displays that give students access to real-time data from the systems, including energy production, emissions offsets and weather dat...
