Solar Panels at Wellesley Middle School

We Wellesley High School students propose that the Town of Wellesley install solar panels on the roof of Wellesley Middle School.
- Switching to solar power could significantly benefit the environment. In the 2015-2016 school year, WMS used 1,209,960 kWH of energy, equal to more than $150,000.
- We could save water and trees while reducing carbon emissions just by making the switch.
- Based on the kWH of energy WMS used last year, the school generated 1,338,215.76 pounds of CO2 emissions. That is equivalent to powering 64 homes a year.
- By switching to solar energy we could reduce our CO2 emissions and save up to 7,000 trees in Wellesley. Wellesley is a tree city and we’ve spent $40,000 this year for new tree plantings.
- Switching to solar panels would save nearly 600,000 gallons of water a year. That much water could fill over 500 Olympic size swimming pools.
Wellesley has an opportunity both to help preserve the planet for future generations and to create a greener, more cost-efficient environment for the town itself. Please sign today!
