School goes solar

State's largest municipal array up and running

(Continued)

As part of the agreement with Ameresco, the company that financed the panels by way of a 20-year power purchase contract with the city of Newburyport, the company will provide professional development to teachers at the Nock so that they will know what to do with the data once it gets into the classrooms. That tutorial will likely be offered soon after the ribbon-cutting ceremony, Hopping said.

"People are excited about it, but they just don't know how to use it yet," he said. "We're not at that point yet."

The ribbon-cutting ceremony is planned for Wednesday, Oct. 14, at 10 a.m. in the Nock Middle School library.
