If anyone were to ask “What is solar power?” Rockford Elementary School would certainly know how to answer.

This array was installed AT NO COST to the district by Innovative Power System’s Solar on Schools Program. Over the next 30 years, our systems will save hundreds-of-thousands in taxpayer dollars by lowering operational costs for school districts. Contact IPS to find out how solar can provide educational opportunities AND save money.

Innovative Power Systems installed this 39.36kW solar electric system in Rockford, Minnesota to offset the electricity load of the school. The system produces about 50,000kWh of electricity on average per year. Producing 50,000kWh of electricity annually from coal emits about 100,000 pounds of carbon dioxide. Preventing this much carbon dioxide from being released in to the atmosphere is equivalent to adding 5,000 trees to our forests. Over a 30-year span, IPS expects this system will offset 3,000,000 pounds or 1,500 tons of carbon dioxide.
