RONALD REAGAN MIDDLE SCHOOL SOLAR ARRAY – DIXON PUBLIC SCHOOL DISTRICT 170

In the summer of 2005, Reagan Middle School in Dixon, Illinois became the largest ground-mounted solar school in the state. Its 51.2 kW system was placed at a school named after President Ronald Reagan – in a town where he lived as a child. This large system shows off the fact that solar can supply a large amount of power, and educate at the same time.

GreenAssociates assisted in the design of the thermal solar arrays which is expected to pay back the District in eight to ten years.
