The lights at the Wahlert Catholic High School Bernie O'Connor Tennis Center are now powered by the sun! ☀️
Yesterday, Wahlert Catholic science students witnessed the culmination of a two-year project. In partnership with Eagle Point Solar, environmental science students have been investigating solar energy solutions that might be suitable for the school campus, finally settling on the tennis court project.
Not only will the solar array power the courts, but the system will also serve as a valuable teaching tool for years to come.
Eagle Point Solar contributed their expertise and labor with design, engineering and installation services. Van Meter also donated the physical materials necessary for the project.
Please join us in thanking these two community partners for their commitment to this unique educational project! We extend a special thanks to the Eagle Point Solar team for sharing their expertise with our students these past two years.
A ribbon cutting will be held on Wednesday, June 5, at 1 p.m. at the Bernie O'Connor Tennis Courts to celebrate the completion of the project. Please join us!
