Solar panels that obscure school might be moved
May 24, 2013 13:13 GMT
ROGERSVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A wall of solar panels in front of a Surgoinsville school might be moved out back.
The panels are part of an ambitious project under which solar collection panels have been installed at 20 Hawkins County school facilities to cut utility costs and sell back power to TVA.
But the Kingsport Times-News (http://bit.ly/18burcf ) reported the wall of panels at Surgoinsville Middle School has some people worried about school security and others upset at what they see as an eyesore.
The panels are 7 feet high and stretch the length of a football field. They obscure viewing the school.
At a school board work session Thursday, board members talked about moving the array. It can't be voted on until the regular board meeting on June 4.
