At 1710 W. Addison Street in Chicago, Illinois, there is a wonderful school building with a piece of new technology, a 1+ kW solar electricity system. The photovoltaic (PV) system will be used as a teaching tool in the classroom and is visible from those same classrooms. Live data can be found on Illinoissolarschools.org
The school is for students up through the 8th grade. Allen Ackermann is the Principal. Earth Wind and Solar did the solar installation.
