Salisbury School Celebrates New Solar Panels

SALISBURY – Officials with The Salisbury School (TSS) held a ribbon-cutting ceremony last Friday to celebrate the installation of 900 solar panels on the outskirts of campus grounds.

Solar panels found on the campus will now be incorporated into the school’s STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math)-based curriculum, giving students an opportunity to learn about and create sustainable technology.

Ed Cowell, headmaster at TSS, said officials proposed the project nearly two years ago in an effort to expand the facility’s green school initiative.

“We have a lot of green initiatives in our school and solar is something we considered for many years,” he said. “There are some real educational benefits for our students.”

This saves Salisbury School money because we pay more.

Please study the true cost of renewable energy.

The install is ugly, as many of them are. Solar, to the extent it pays its own way is fine.

The notion the kids will be studying them is laughable.

The funding mechanisms and rebates that shift their costs to others is unacceptable.

Was Liberal Jim able to make the ribbon cutting?
