WARREN SCHOOL'S SOLAR PANELS MAKE MONEY, ENLIGHTEN STUDENTS

Warren County High School is home to the largest collection of solar panels on a school in the state. While the energy harnessed there doesn't power the school, the students do benefit from it, school leaders said Wednesday. The high school leased space on its roof for the next 20 years to Argand Energy Solutions and private investors, which paid a $75,000 fee to install more than 2,000 solar panels. After eight years, the school will collect $6,000 annually. The company plans to sell the energy – enough to power 50 homes – to Progress Energy.
