Hawthorne School District Solar Celebration

solar celebration

On April 3rd the Hawthorne School District held an event at Prairie Vista Middle School to celebrate the installation of solar panels at nine of our ten schools. Jefferson School does not have enough accessible sunlight to make the installation of solar viable at that site.

In addition to the prospect of reduced electric bills, the solar structures provide much needed shade for our students. To erect shade structures at our schools was cost prohibitive. The solar structures were installed at no cost to the District. These structures produce renewable energy, reduce utility costs, and provide a protected area for students on some of our hot and sunny Southern California days.

Renewable energy in the form of solar has arrived in the Hawthorne School District. I am sure this concept will be the subject of projects completed by our students. I am happy we are able to model the benefits of solar energy for our students and community.
