DARIEN, Conn., Oct. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Connecticut-based solar company, Soluxe Solar, presented Progress Energy with its Solar Flare Award in recognition of its outstanding SunSense Schools solar energy program.
"The SunSense Schools program is offering schools the resources they need to educate our youth in renewable energy, free of cost," said Soluxe Solar CEO, Jeffrey Mayer, in acknowledging Progress Energy.
With the help of Progress Energy's SunSense Schools program, the University of Florida will go solar with a 100-kW power plant this November.
"This small but meaningful power plant will significantly reduce the University of Florida's energy costs. More importantly, the solar panels will serve as a teaching tool," said Mayer. The ground-mounted panels will be installed near the university's Energy Research and Education Park and also near the Microbiology and Cell Science building.
Committed to energy education and development, Progress Energy's SunSense Schools program provides 10 public schools and 1 post-secondary institution with no-cost solar installations annually.
"Education is where it all starts. Progress Energy recognizes that and they're doing something about it. That's why they deserve the honor of our Solar Flare Award," added Mayer.
