“Solarbration” Held at Oregon High School for the Installation of New Solar Panels

OREGON (WIFR) -- Going “green” is a concept Oregon High School students will not only be learning about, but living, as their school hosts a “solarbration” Thursday, August 30th, starting at 3:30 pm in the high school library.

This celebration of clean energy is tied to the installation of five solar panels at Oregon High School this summer. There was no cost to local taxpayers as the school district was awarded two grants, one from the Illinois Clean Energy Foundation and the second from the Solar Star Foundation that covered installation costs. The new solar panels are even expected to lower the high school’s overall energy costs.

The “solarbration” presentation will focus on upcoming class activities tied to clean energy at both Oregon High School and Oregon Elementary. Teachers from both schools will be the featured speakers and will discuss what lessons students can learn from environmentally- friendly technology.
All are welcome to attend the “solarbration” at Oregon High School, 210 South Tenth Street, inside the school’s library.
