The multi-million dollar roof-mounted photovoltaic project will be implemented at Glenbard East High School and includes over 3,000 solar panels. The photovoltaic array is expected to generate an average annual production of 1.4 million kilowatt hours of electricity, equivalent to powering 116 homes and avoiding 1,003 metric tons of CO2 emissions each year. In addition, the project is slated to receive $1.0 million in rebates and incentives to offset the project cost.

Construction kicked off in May 2020 with the new solar system expected to be complete and generating power by November 30, 2020.
