Interested to see the math on this. Insulation is good but the ROI on solar is generally not there unless solar prices comes down. It tends to be more of a feel good thing and an environmental statement. Makes more sense to work this into the scheduled building rehab plan over a 10+ year period. It all seems somewhat defocusing from the educational mission.
Of course if there was matching stimulus funds coming from Washington that may change things!

Of course, return on investment calculations will need to be completed, and any grant opportunities will need to be explored, but the value of giving our students first-hand experience with alternative energy technology must not be underestimated. In my view, MVLA's embarking on this is not just a "feel good thing" and should be understood as an important part of any educational mission.
