Solar in the News

The Columbus Dispatch

The solar panels at Bluffsview Elementary School were once such a novelty that people flew in from Chicago just to take a look. The vice principal of the Worthington school was invited to Washington, D.C., to speak about the project.

Twelve years later, solar panels pop up at schools with such regularity that state organizations can’t keep track of them.

“It’s almost to the point where it’s happening so fast now it’s going to be commonplace,” said Glen Kizer, president of the Foundation for Environmental Education in Columbus.
