Two retired teachers have spent two years and $20,000 of their own money to add solar panels to Eaton Rapids High School.
Gary Vittoz and Gerald Adams say they see their effort as a money-saving measure for the school district and a chance for students to see a real-world science application in action.
The Lansing State Journal reports Monday one-third of the $20,000 was spent outfitting the solar paneling with equipment that will record daily data.
The information will be transmitted to an online program Eaton Rapids students can study and use in class.
Vittoz says he and Adams wanted their donations to have a significant and lasting impact.
The paneling requires little upkeep and is expected to withstand inclement weather.
