Lincoln Heights Elementary School Our Story

Lincoln Heights Elementary places high importance on their green initiatives, these include recycling, using environmentally friendly lunch trays, serving fresh, chemical free, locally grown vegetables at lunch, and setting policies that staff and students must conserve energy. Their participation in the Michigan Renewable Schools Program and their recent introduction of a 100 kilowatt (kW) solar PV Array, which is large enough to power 20 energy efficient homes, will help them to further their initiatives and educate their students on the importance of renewable energy. These young students are part of a big movement as their town strives to become the first net-zero city.
Since monitoring began 10/08/2010, this system has generated 746,346 kilowatt hours of clean energy.
