Oakwood Friends School Solar array

As part of a multi-year focus on sustainability and stewardship in action, this project does more than provide clean, renewable energy.

The Oakwood array provides a focal point for countless educational opportunities within our Middle School, Upper School and local community. A secured and gated entrance to the array will serve as a backdrop for outdoor classroom space and neighborhood outreach programs.  Plans are in the works to provide a web-based interface in which the entire community can log in and monitor electrical generation in real-time.
