Solar energy system, curriculum coming to Brookwood High | Gwinnett Daily Post

Power generated by the solar array will be channeled into the buildings power system to help meet the schools electrical needs. Principal Bo Ford said this partnership embraces the schools desire and commitment to a sustainable future. The partnership will allow the school to expand its offering in environmental education. Our teachers and students now have real data and project-based learning opportunities centered around this initiative, Ford said in a statement. The SunPower for Schools program includes dedicated software and a supporting curriculum developed by the University of West Georgia, which includes dozens of lesson plans that support science, technology, engineering and math standards. This system will give our students hands-on experience with one of the fastest growing energy technologies in the country while teaching them the importance of utilizing a sustainable energy resource, said Carrie Settles Livers, AP environmental science and physics teacher, Science Department co-chair and Outdoor Club sponsor at Brookwood. Brookwood is the 37th school to join the SunPower for Schools program in EMC territories across Georgia. Walton EMC, which provides retail electric service to the school, said its solar partnership with Brookwood is a reflection of the cooperatives interest and involvement in the communities where it provides power.
