In an effort to be green and get green, the Jefferson Township school district is investigating the possibility of bringing privately funded solar energy to the district that would also provide revenue for projects on the district’s wish list.
“We are currently looking into having solar panels installed,” said Board of Education and finance committee head Frank Cuccio. “The way it would work is that we would get credits from the government for using renewable energy. The solar panel company would sell the energy to the power company, giving us revenue.”
