Scheduled to be fully operational by the second quarter of 2012, KDC selected J. Fletcher Creamer & Son Inc. to install the system.
When complete, it is expected to generate around 8,600,000 kilowatt hours of electricity annually, thus meeting 90 percent of the schools energy needs. It will comprise approximately 25,000 of SolarWorld Americas 245W photovoltaic panels.
Wes Brooks, Lawrenceville’s CFO and COO, commented, "This project has the scale to take the School virtually ‘off the grid’ while exposing our students to an example they will want to emulate. We are excited about this project and very pleased to be partnered with KDC."
To mark the beginning of construction, a ground breaking ceremony was held at the site on October 5.
