Although not easily seen from ground level, an impressive 242 kilowatt (KW) solar array now generates clean renewable energy at BRS. The 970 solar panels, located above the south wing and center “pod” roofs, will generate approximately 291,000 kilowatt-hours (KWH) of electrical energy a year, one-third of our school’s annual energy usage. The panels, owned and maintained by a State agency and UI, produce electricity. We buy and use that electricity at a significantly reduced rate. The solar panel system has an annual gross cost savings of $37,830; and an annual net cost savings of $13,680.
