The sun officially went to work helping power Four Peaks Elementary as representatives from Salt River Project switched on the school's recently-installed solar panels.

As part of SRP's "Solar for Schools Program," Four Peaks received a 65-panel, 13.2 kWh solar system. Installed on the roof of the school's cafeteria, the panels will save Apache Junction Unified School District an estimated $1,800 annually in energy costs. SRP provided the panels at no cost to the district and will maintain the system for 10 years.

Four Peaks plans to install a monitor system to show students how much energy the school is saving, and will create lesson plans and activities involving solar power.
