After researching and examining many different solar farm opportunities and locations, a small spot conveniently near the campus was finally chosen in the area where the old tennis courts were located, between Stoney Gym and the pond.. Our new solar garden is convenient to the many Patterson Science Center students who will experience “hands on” the assessment of solar power generated at Patterson School Foundation. solar-panel02

More than 300 Blue Ridge customers have signed up to get a portion of their electricity from one or more of the solar panels installed on campus. The solar array is one of four that Blue Ridge plans to maintain throughout its coverage area.
