NECA contractor Guarantee Electrical Co. (GECO)’s installation of a 100-kilowatt rooftop solar array at High Mount School in Swansea, Ill. has a two-fold purpose: saving on energy costs and educating students. “It has been a vision of mine as well as the High Mount School Board of Education for the past six years to install a solar panel array” said Superintendent Mark Halwachs. “Guarantee Electrical is making this vision a reality through their expertise and guidance with the installation process. The solar panel array will offer STEM activities in our classrooms, with students determining the efficiency of the panels and the amount of electricity that they are producing each day.” Read more about the installation.
