Lower Moreland Now a Solar Powered School District

All three schools at LMTSD recently had solar panels installed on the roof tops.

The at the Lower Moreland School District.

All three schools - the , and - have installed solar photo-voltaic panels on each of its rooftops.

The project was supposed to be completed by November, but because of a hard substance (which was later found to be glue) found on the high school roof, construction was pushed back.

The solar panels that were installed generate a combined quantity of 575 kilowatts of electricity, which is about one-third of the High School’s electrical demand. The panels will eliminate 4,674 tons of CO2 emissions, or the equivalent of saving 1,402 acres of trees or not driving 12,800,000 vehicle miles.  

You can see live energy updates from the High School, Murray Avenue and Pine Road.

The solar project provides a learning opportunity for students and a practical teaching aid for the classroom. Recently students were taken to the high school roof top to learn about energy conservation, firsthand, by tracking the energy generated on the roof. Having a working power plant on their school roof, students will be able to track the relationship between sunlight and electricity production.

You can connect to our solar monitoring solution right from your own home by accessing the school web site.
