Baltimore, MD - 36.66 kW • Motech 235 Watt Panels • Enphase Microinverters
Roland Park Country School is nestled on a beautiful 21 acre campus just north of downtown Baltimore on Roland Avenue. The independent all-girls college preparatory school is a leader within the strong private school community in Baltimore, continually looking for new ways to innovate in the classroom, and improve the school’s impact on the surrounding areas. Over the last 10 years, Roland Park became a Maryland Green School and reduced its carbon footprint by 10%.
Students in a Sustainable Design and Engineering class introduced solar as the next logical step. The students developed a proposal to install a photovoltaic solar array that would double as an educational tool for the rest of the student body and the surrounding community. Once the administration approved their plans, CNC Solar and K-Electric were brought on board. With everyone working together, Roland Park won a competitive grant from the Lockhart Vaughan Foundation to install the array. In order to expand the system’s size, CNC Solar helped Roland Park secure an additional grant from the Maryland Energy Administration.
In the fall of 2011, CNC Solar installed 156 Motech 235 watt panels, manufactured an hour up 95 N in Newark, DE. The finished system totals 36.66kW, produces 1% of the K-12 schools electricity usage, and offsets almost 45,000 lbs. of CO2 annually. CNC Solar, K-Electric, and the Roland Park Faculty have already implemented the educational aspects of the array into the classroom, with plans for further integration and learning.
