Solar Panels for Missouri Schools

Missouri, United States – June 28, 2004 [] A mix of energy and education has found it’s way into the state school system with the program Missouri Schools Going Solar (MSGS), which was created by the Missouri Department of Natural Resources. The Missouri Energy Center and the energy services company Ameren have partnered to provide 1 kW solar arrays to qualifying schools so that students, staff, and the whole community can explore the subject of energy. The interconnected PV array will bear a small amount of electrical load for a school building, but has the potential to generate lots of community and school interest, enthusiasm and understanding about clean, renewable solar electric energy. The first seven schools to participate in the program were selected through a grant process, and the program is looking for a company to design and install a 1 kW photovoltaic (PV) array and data acquisition systems for approximately 20 schools in the state.
