Solar Energy by Cedar Creek Powers Bright Futures at The Goddard School in Albertville
In a new project that brings clean energy and education to the forefront, The Goddard School in Albertville has made the switch to solar power with the help of Cedar Creek Energy. TV and news station Kare 11 captured footage of our installation and interview clips with Cedar Creek Energy project developer on the scene, Erin Harvey!
Project Inspiration & Design
The Goddard School, renowned for its early childhood education programs, has set its sights on a greener, more sustainable future. The decision to switch to solar energy was not just about cost savings; it was about a commitment to environmental stewardship and enhancing educational opportunities.
One of the key elements that made this project special was the educational opportunities it provided the students. Not only will the school benefit from generating clean energy, the switch to solar became an integral part of the school’s curriculum. The young students at The Goddard School had the opportunity to witness the transition to renewable energy up close, sparking their curiosity and understanding of sustainability from an early age. Education about renewable energy and the solar panels on the school’s roof has already been worked into many of the teacher’s lesson plans, according to the school’s owner, Vikram Aggarwal.
The Goddard School’s solar system is expected to generate approximately 62,600 kilowatt-hours of energy annually. To put it in perspective, that’s equivalent to burning 50,000 pounds of coal or using 4,400 gallons of diesel fuel. It not only reduces the institution’s carbon footprint but also serves as a living example of the possibilities that renewable energy offers.
