Solar Classroom 

One room in Bangor High is running on solar power.The ‘Green Room’ runs on power generated by solar panels on the high school roof.So far enough energy has been produced by the solar electric system, even on cloudy days, to run the room.The excess energy is collected by Bangor Hydro, and will be used to power the room during winter months, when the sun isn’t out as much.Students are using this as a learning tool to help them better understand how solar power works.And they’re doing projects revolving around renewable energy. “This is a project that’s pretty well rounded, in it gives students at all abilities and all levels an opportunity to look at alternative energy.”You can check out the project and look at just how much money and energy is being saved by logging on to
