There is a solar school in Glenview, Illinois. 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. Those solar panels were assembled in Rockford, Illinois and the installation was done by Renewable Energy Alternatives. (REA)
“We absolutely loved working with Dave Ristow of the Attea Middle School,” said Mark Brezinski of REA in Arlington Heights, Illinois. 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.”
The system size is 1.32 kW and the panels are angled at 33 degrees. The electricity generated by the solar panels is metered by an Enphase Enlighten data system.
“This will be such a fantastic teaching tool for our staff,” said David Ristow (7th Grade Science teacher). “I know I will start using it this Fall and I am sure the other science teachers on our other teams will as well.”
