17 Oct Harris Middle 6th graders visit DREMC solar farm
Sixth grade students at Harris Middle School are studying renewable energy and solar energy this week. To add to their curriculum, teachers arranged for a close-up look at DREMC’s 25 kW solar farm located across the street from their school. There are a total of 108 solar panels installed at the cooperative’s solar farm. The panels were erected in 2012. Sixth graders visited the farm throughout the school day on Monday, Oct. 14, and learned about solar power being collected near their school and how it is a sustainable renewable energy source.
