Illinois Solar School at Saint Stanislaus Kostka

Illinois Clean Energy Community Foundation (ICECF) funded a 1 kW solar electricity system at the Saint Stanislaus Kostka School on North Noble Street in Chicago, Illinois. This is an amazing place where children in PK3 through 8th grade have embraced the opportunity to learn about clean energy and have since implemented sustainable practices throughout the school – through recycling, source reduction, use of earth-friendly products and environmental education.

The installation was done by Earth, Wind And Solar Energy and includes 6 Mage 180 watt PV panels and an Enphase inverter. The students of Saint Stanislaus Kostka School enthusiastically observed the installation and applauded when the switch was flipped yelling “solar”. Riana Caravette, president of Earth Wind And Solar Energy says “This is a great opportunity for our children to start learning about clean energy, get into green careers and become future adopters of this technology.”

The data can be read by going to the IllinoisSolarSchools.org.

Len Kaihara is the primary contact for the school and his e mail can be found at the school page above.  The installation was completed in 2011.
