Solar Panels

Madison High School is saving the school district nearly $15,000 with its new solar panels. In all there are 308 solar panels. KIDK reports that a $444,000 state grant went directly toward funding the project. In addition to saving money in the long run, the school hopes it will educate students about the importance of alternative energy sources. Officials say sunny skies, higher altitudes, and cooler temperatures are ideal for producing high power. The project at Madison is one of 10 projects being completed at schools across the state.
