The NRG solar installation at the school is comprised of 397 solar panels, which will provide 112 kilowatts of power, enough to handle one-third of the school’s peak electricity demand with renewable solar energy. The installation also features playground upgrades and educational components including fans, drinking fountains, a garden irrigation system, prisms and inspirational sayings intended to improve the overall student and teacher experience.

“More than just a source of energy, this playground will serve as a source of inspiration, education and fun for years to come,” said Dr. Hicks, the school principal.

NRG Energy partnered with several organizations to design and deliver this project. It was designed and managed by Sunora Energy Solutions, which also fabricated and pre-assembled the solar arrays with panels donated by Trina Solar. DLR Design Group and Core Construction provided engineering and construction support. Common Ground Relief provided the gardens and wetland plantings and educational components. The entire project was inspired by the ongoing work Global Green USA has been leading in the lower Ninth Ward.
