SW Licking School District and Tipping Point Working on Solar Installation

Tipping Point Renewable Energy and the Southwest Licking School District recently entered into a Memorandum of Understanding to develop a solar energy installation at Watkins Memorial High School.

The Newark Advocate wrote an excellent story covering the potential benefits and protections built into the agreement for the District:

If the district follows through on the proposal, it could save at least $10,000 a year in electric costs at the high school, Treasurer Richard Jones said.

"Every little bit helps," Jones said, adding the $10,000 figure could balloon to $30,000 or more in annual savings, depending on the price of electricity.

Said school board member Roger Zeune: "This is the future -- alternative energy."
