A Little History

Last year Dr. Becky Gill wrote a grant through Earth Wind and Solar Energy to be part of their school and education our reach program. Earth Wind and Solar Energy, LLC (EWSE) is Illinois first female minority owned company that specializes in installation of renewable energy systems and energy efficiencies. They are a premier designer and installer for commercial and residential 'green' power. The solar panels not only have the potential to save us money, they have an endless learning potential for our staff and students.
