Success

Shoreland Lutheran High School’s intent for the solar energy project was to integrate into their science and consumer education curricula information that would help students build a working knowledge about the science and benefits of earth-friendly renewable energy. The funding provided by the We Energies Non-Profit Renewable Energy Incentive made possible programs that have the potential to spark interest that may lead to a career that advances the science of clean energy generation. By having an understanding of renewable energy and its benefits, students will become better consumers and conservers of energy resources.

Charles Waller, chair of the Development and Stewardship Committee, said, “The 10-kW photovoltaic project enables the school to put us out in front of something that is new and important to the public. One of the speakers at the Solar Decade Conference said, ‘We are like auto enthusiasts in the early 20th century’ and Shoreland Lutheran High School wants to be a small part of this leading-edge group”!
