Meadowview Magnet Middle School was the first of four schools in Pilot Year one to install a 5 kW solar array with the help of our NC GreenPower Solar Schools grant program.
We talked to Jeff Edwards, Science Institute Director at Meadowview Magnet Middle School, about his experience with the program and the impact it will have on his students.
Jeff: "As the coordinator for Surry County Schools Science Institute, it was my idea to apply for the grant… and we were very anxious to hear about the funding. The Science Institute hosts programs for elementary students on the campus of Meadowview Magnet Middle, so the array gave us something to add to those visits."
