Turning a renewable leaf to power a preschool

LeafSpring School, formerly Rainbow Station, will use clean solar energy

img_0458February 27, 2018 – CHARLOTTE, NC – A local preschool has gone solar, and the young students are among those most excited about the change. LeafSpring School, until recently known as Rainbow Station, located off of Providence Road West, prides itself on innovative learning. The school has recently completed a 40-kiloWatt photovoltaic solar system on the south side of the building’s roof, with their partner Renu Energy Solutions, a solar energy company.

This area is in full view from one of the main outdoor play areas, and the leadership team at LeafSpring School is thrilled to incorporate solar power into their students’ experience. At the same time, it will directly reduce the energy from the grid that the school uses to power the building daily.

LeafSpring School owner Parks Hunter says the solar energy system adds to the school’s core values, saying, “We are constantly looking to set the standard in all aspects of early childhood education from implementing a leadership-based curriculum to having the ‘Serengeti Plain’ for our playground. Going solar is another example of LeafSpring School continuing to raise the bar and be the leader in early childhood education. Partnering with Renu Energy to make solar power a reality for our facility has been great.”

Parks’ high regard for the school and its aims is matched by enthusiasm on the part of parents and students. The students are all very excited. One said, “I think that it’s very cool that our preschool is being powered by solar panels. We are the first school in the area to do that!”

Another student shared those sentiments saying, “I think that solar panels are outstanding because they use light to get energy. It’s pretty cool that my Afterschool and Preschool is the only one near here with solar panels.”
