Just before all the craziness with COVID-19, a small group gathered to mark an important moment for our small school. We took a major step toward reducing our carbon footprint with a new solar array that generates 27,000 kwh/year. This translates into an average annual cost savings of $2,400. For a small non-profit, where every dollar counts, this is extremely important. Equally important is showing our students that their voices matter, their actions matter, and they can be change agents in their communities as long as they take a stand and put in the work to get it done.
Thanks to Rachael Cornick of Houston Renewable Energy Group (HREG) and Dylan Calhoun for realizing the dreams of Eduardo De La Torre (’99) and Chinquapin’s Science Technology and Society Club to reduce energy consumption on campus!
