From the Huntley School District Board President Michael J. Fleck:
Solar Power Project
We are excited to announce a new initiative to increase our environmental sustainability, lower our energy costs, and provide a learning laboratory for our students.
The Board of Education recently approved a general terms agreement with ForeFront Power, a leading renewable energy company based in San Francisco, to construct solar power installations on each of our three campuses.
The net results of these three installations include the offsetting of 12.3 million pounds of carbon emissions annually, totaling at least $4.2 million in energy savings over the next 20 years.
In addition, ForeFront will provide each of our schools with kiosks for real-time monitoring of energy production and educational materials that will help integrate solar power technology into the school curriculum.
