Daily Commercial News and Construction Record Solar installation topping off Walden Public School in Lively, Ontario
By the end of summer 2011, Sudbury’s Walden Public School will draw a portion of its energy usage from a 100-kilowatt rooftop photovoltaic solar power system.
With it in place, as well as the wind turbine currently spinning in the school’s yard, the school will be producing about 60 per cent of its energy requirements.
Solar capacity is the last stage in efforts by the Rainbow District School Board, working with Ameresco Canada, to produce a school with a healthier, greener environment for students with lower operating costs.
