Green technology is giving a local school a boost to its bottom line.
Career Institute of Technology said the solar panel project will also teach students the tools of the trade.
“Today, we have a beautiful day to start to grow electricity,” said Joe Stemrich, CIT instructor.
At the school in Easton, that electricity is growing in a field of solar panels and soon, on the rooftop of the school.
“We are going to be able to generate electricity and buy it at a fixed rate for 20 years,” said Ron Roth, CIT director.
CIT officials expect the savings to reach $640,000, or 18 percent of its energy usage in that time, helping it to use its money for other things.
