We are working to raise money to fund the Carson Future Renewable Energy Effort, or Carson FREE for short. By applying for grants and talking to companies, we are hoping to obtain tens of thousands of dollars to continue our project. Eventually, we plan to have a larger on-grid photovoltaic system on Rachel Carson Middle School’s roof, and we are also looking into a wind energy program for our school.  This is also a learning oppurtunity for the Rachel Carson student body, and we hope to not only use solar panels to power our school, but also to have other forms of renewable energy, such as wind turbines and geothermal. The panels supply a percentage of our school’s electrical needs, and in later years could be expanded to provide even more. We are already working on grants and other organized forms of fundraising  to assist with the funding.
