Idaho Arts Charter School Installs Solar
The Idaho Arts Charter School celebrated its new 1.792 kW system on October 25 during a school assembly.
Jackie Collins, principal of Idaho Arts Charter School, received a giant commemorative “sun” plaque from Idaho Power Regional Customer Relations Manager Jake Perryman during a school assembly. The celebration included a performance of “Here Comes The Sun” by yellow-clad students welcoming their new solar project.
"Receiving this grant will allow our students to have a ‘hands on’ ability to learn about solar power,” said Collins. “Using new technology to analyze and compare solar and electric power will excite the students at Idaho Arts Charter for many years. Students are also always interested in ways to help reduce our footprint on the earth."
