HINCKLEY, Maine (AP) The Good Will-Hinckley School in central Maine is going solar.
President Glenn Cummings says the school has begun powering its campus with renewable energy from a new $125,000 rooftop solar project.
The 25.6-kilowatt solar system was financed and installed by ReVision Energy, Maine’s largest solar energy installation company. ReVision will own the equipment and supply energy to the school for six years, then Good Will-Hinckley will be able to buy the equipment.
Cummings says the system will save the school at least $112,000 over the life of the project. The system provides about 10 percent of the school’s energy needs.
