Wilmington Friends School, one of the oldest private schools in the country, today announced that it will install more than 700 solar photovoltaic (PV) panels on the rooftops of two campus buildings this summer, resulting in one of the largest of solar PV systems on a K-12 school in Delaware and providing a unique learning opportunity for the school's students.

"The popularity of solar installations at educational institutions is growing rapidly due to the tremendous economic, environmental and educational opportunities," said Scott Wiater, president, Standard Solar. "We are excited to be a part of this project and doing our part to help Wilmington Friends and its students take another step forward in their environmental stewardship."
