Gary Smith started this petition to Superintendent Brian Beck and

We propose that our school (Great Falls Middle School/Turners Falls High School)  should triple the number of solar panels on our school building to save energy, money and to reduce our impact on climate change.

This project is important because it can help reduce our school’s contribution to climate change. When you burn coal and gas to make electricity it creates carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases which can be harmful to the environment. However,  if we install more solar panels for GFMS and TFHS, it would not only help the school pay less for the electric bills but also help our planet by reducing greenhouse gas emissions and reducing our collective dependence on fossil fuel.

This project would increase our solar capacity from powering 12 classrooms to  powering 36 classrooms (that is approximately half of the classrooms in the entire school). Our school currently has 1950 square feet of solar panels that were installed in April of 2004.  We want to triple the amount to 5850 square feet of panels.

Solar panels are super efficient and have the potential of giving us sustainable energy for years.  Although it may take quite some time, this investment will help save money for the school in the long run. The school can then use the money saved for other beneficial things like textbooks, technology and school materials that are needed for studying or sports equipment.

Please support our petition! We want to make our educational envirionment greener and have less of an impact on climate change so that future generations can have a safe and healthy planet.
