Sustainability

The PC Manchester Regional Board of Education has made efforts to make the school district more sustainable. Whether it involves recycling, planting gardens, installing LED lighting, or exploring the installation of solar panels, PC Manchester Regional High School understands the benefits to sustainability. Not only does achieving sustainability make our world a better place, in many ways it helps the district to save money.

SOLAR PANELS
 
During the 2014-15 school year the PC Manchester Regional Board of Education tasked the Business Administrator with exploring the viability of solar panels for the PC Manchester Regional Board of Education. Below is a copy of that report. 
The Board of Education decided to explore solar panel installation through a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA), which involved renting the district's roof space to an outside vendor for the installation of solar panels, with the vendor selling the energy created by those panels to the district at a reduced rate. The district has an approved PPA vendor. Once the contract is settled with the vendor it will be posted here.
The PC Manchester Regional Board of Education is in the process of forming a green team to discuss green projects and initiatives for the upcoming months / years. Those who are interested should contact John Serapiglia via email at jserapiglia@mrhs.net
