There is a solar school in Glenview, Illinois.Â Attea Middle School is located on Chestnut Avenue and if you are driving by you will see 6 Wanxiang solar panels on the top of the roof.Â Those solar panels were assembled in Rockford, Illinois and the installation was done by Renewable Energy Alternatives. (REA)
â€œWe absolutely loved working with Dave Ristow of the Attea Middle School,â€ said MarkÂ Brezinski of REA in Arlington Heights, Illinois.Â In fact, everyone at the school was very nice and enthusiastic and I am sure the students will get introduced to the solar electricity system the day they get to school for the new year.â€
The system size is 1.32 kW and the panels are angled at 33 degrees.Â The electricity generated by the solar panels is metered by an Enphase Enlighten data system.
â€œThis will be such a fantastic teaching tool for our staff,â€ said David Ristow (7th Grade Science teacher).Â â€œI know I will start using it this Fall and I am sure the other science teachers on our other teams will as well.â€
