Travis High School Solar Panel Project “Flips the Switch”
Travis High School’s Green Club members officially enabled their 2 KWatt grid-tie solar panel system on March 17. The system provides alternate energy for the school and any excess energy generated is placed on the public utility grid and sold back to the utility company.
In addition to offsetting utility costs, the project will be used to enhance the curriculum in science, technology and mathematics.
Travis Green Club students are taking part in this pilot program made possible through donations from the Fort Bend Education Foundation, Fluor Corporation and Texas Solar Outfitters.
