Penta Career Center officially unveiled the recently completed $2 million solar array. The solar array at Penta is the first of its kind constructed at a career-technical school in Ohio. Enerlogics and GEM Energy are co-developers of the project. The fix-tilt, ground-mount array is located on six acres and is visible from I-75. First Solar provided 3,168 of their newest generation 415 and 420 watt Series 6 solar panels that were manufactured at its facility in Lake Township. The project is expected to provide nearly 60% of the electricity needs for Penta and will produce 1.76 million kilowatt hours of power.
