Energy cost savings through solar energy and on-site security were two of many topics discussed at the February 13 Highland Board of Education meeting.
Board member John Messmer said the possibility of solar power for the three school buildings is being examined by the board.
“We’ve met with a solar outfit over the past month several times and it looks like a good opportunity for everybody in the community,” he explained. “We’ve got some more work to do on it but we hope by this time next month, we’ll have something to share that we’ll be moving forward with.”
Messmer said it would provide a great cost savings for the school district and the board will keep the public updated. Solar Planet of Westerville and Constellation Energy are the two companies that have been contacted.
