AES Solar to Showcase Public School Installations at “Solarbration” Event
AES Solar announced today a “Solarbration” to be held on Friday, April 26th, from 8:45 AM to 11:30 PM at Carruthers Elementary School in Murphysboro, IL. This event will showcase new solar power installations recently completed at Carruthers Elementary School and the adjoining Murphysboro High School. A ribbon cutting will be held at 8:45 AM, and attendees are welcome to stay after and enjoy informational booths and educational activities.
AES Solar donated and installed these systems as part of the “Illinois Solar Schools” program. Sponsored by the Illinois Clean Energy Community Foundation, the program aims to educate Illinois’ students on renewable energy with hands-on green energy activities. Classrooms are able to explore how renewable energy works with their own live, functioning systems. This is both fun for the students, and gives them daily experience with how their actions impact the environment.
Aur Beck, Founder and Chief Tech at AES Solar, sees education as fundamental to the company’s mission to power a sustainable economy by bringing renewable energy to America’s neighborhoods. The company has previously donated solar power systems to schools in Mt Vernon, Johnston City, Herrin, and Vienna as part of the same program.
