West Unity, OH
School officials with Millcreek-West Unity Schools are going over options to install solar panels on district property.
The move is all part of a plan to save on energy costs for the school system. School officials believe the plan would complement the district’s intention to convert its fluorescent lights to LED, which could save the district even more on energy costs in the process.
Right now, the board is in talks with a property owner about buying six acres of land for the project.
Fremont Community School in nearby Steuben County, Indiana recently implemented the use of solar panels to help cut electric utilty cost for the district.
