EPB Solar Share

epb Some of Mr. Elverd and Ms. Costello’s classes visited EPB Solar Share last week to learn how solar energy is produced. We were met by three engineers in a conference room surrounded by the command center where workers monitored electrical usage and EPBFi TV service. The students were put into teams and challenged with a quiz that required mathematical acumen.

A tour of the solar farm followed, and we were able to touch the solar panels. And we learned that even on an overcast day, the panels still generate power. We were given EPB sunglasses, and the team that won the challenge received solar powered flashlights. 

Lunch at Mellow Mushroom was a great end to a great day!
