"We are so excited and pleasantly surprised that we could have solar without having to go to a rooftop installation," said Dr. Hicks, the school principal. "The structure is so perfect and went up so quickly. It will prove to be beneficial for us financially and as a educational center piece well into the future."
Saturday's dedication ceremony was conducted by David Crane, NRG President and CEO; and included Drew Brees, New Orleans Saints Quarterback and Dr. Doris Roche'-Hicks, CEO, Principal of the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Charter School for Science and Technology and John Plumlee, CEO of Sunora Energy Solutions.
Sunora Energy Solutions, who worked in conjunction with NRG, was supported by DLR Design Group in the engineering, and Core Construction in the construction of the installation. The solar panels were donated by Trina Solar (NYSE: TSL). Common Ground Relief was responsible for the gardens and wetland education components and the project was inspired by the ongoing work Global Green USA has been leading in the lower Ninth Ward.
