Who will install the solar panels? How will the school maintain the plan?

It depends, if you are trained or well known in installing solar panels on a building, you could easily do it without no help from others. But if you are not good at installing solar panels, you are reccomended to hire an electrician to install it for you. You can also hire a consultant to run it for you. To keep up with your plan, you can hire an electrician or a consultant to maybe check it monthly, to make sure it will not break and so you do not have to replace it later on.

We might want to contact a local planning authority to make sure that you have the right materials and planning to install and keep up with the solar panels so it might be a good idea to contact some professionals.
