Come next summer, sunshine hitting the roof of Hillhouse High could mean clean energy for students and teachers, and money saved for New Haven taxpayers.
That’s because the city is looking to have solar panel arrays installed on top of Hillhouse and on the roofs of three other schools in New Haven—Cross, King-Robinson, and John C. Daniels.
The city hopes to tap into a state program that encourages solar energy use through a system of “Renewable Energy Certificate.” The City Plan Commissionlast Wednesday voted unanimously to recommend the city take part in the program. The Board of Aldermen’s Education Committee will take up the matter this Wednesday.
