WOONSOCKET – Two new projects at Mount Saint Charles Academy will further the private school’s goal of “leading the way in educating sustainability,” according to school officials.

Just after graduation in June, solar services provider Nexamp will go to work installing a 206 kilowatt system on the roof of Adelard Arena. The solar array will generate approximately 232,000 kilowatt-hours annually of clean, renewable electricity, enough power to supply 34 Rhode Island homes.

The school has been preparing for the new green rooftop addition since summer of 2014, when the roof of the arena was replaced with the structure necessary to support the panels. Nexamp, the largest solar provider in New England, will build and operate the project, and the system will be integrated into the school’s science and physics curriculum.
