Solar demonstration project grant awarded to Allegro Academy
Illinois Clean Energy Community Foundation has announced that a 1kW Solar Panel array will be erected on the campus of Allegro Academy this summer. This technology will provide electricity into the ComEd Rockford grid for year-round use and allow young children to examine the solar panels as they perform.
This $8k grant will enable Allegro Academy to create an environmentally-friendly, renewable, electricity-generating resource for the campus.
These photovoltaic (PV) panels are manufactured in Rockford by Wanxiang America Corporation. They will be installed atop the school roof and conveniently accessed by staircase for student inspection.
Allegro Academy is a non-denominational Christian elementary/middle school at 6413 Forest Hills Road in Rockford. It offers a fine arts program fully integrated with academics to all students. The school serves students aged 4 through grade 8 living throughout the stateline area. Allegro Academy does not discriminate based on age, race, sex, religion or economic status.
