Students tour new solar panels at Williamstown High School

By  | 

WILLIAMSTOWN, W. Va. (WTAP) - The solar panels atop Williamstown High School might have just recently been constructed but they are already doing more than powering the school.
This afternoon high school seniors with the Wood County Technology training program toured the 384 panels to get some hands-on experience.
The group was led around by Chip Pickering of Pickering Energy Solutions which is the company that partnered with Wood County Schools to have the panels placed on top of the school.
The solar panels in total are planned to produce 150 thousand kilowatt hours of energy and offset 155 tons of CO2 each year now that they are up and running.
