Westlake High School Plan Progressing

Here’s a glimpse as to what the installation at Westlake will actually look like. Due to some recent concerns about the structural integrity of the roofs, the panels will now go on the carport behind Building 3.

SSS Featured in NPHS Newpaper

Thanks to Newbury Park High School for featuring Students for Solar School’s in its school newspaper, the Panther Prowler. The article was featured on the Prowler’s front page and summarized SSS’ achievements so far. Newbury Park HS is the most recent school to join the SSS organization, and student’s there, led by sophomore Shanti de Ruyter, are working to embark on the mission for solar panels. We look forward to working with them!

SSS High School Rivalry & Sustainbility Summit

Today I gave a 25 minute presentation about Students for Solar Schools at my rival high school’s first ever sustainability summit. Thousand Oaks High School’s 2010 summit was a huge success and even Superintendent Contini made an appearance and gave a riveting speech about his childhood experience living near the Cuyahoga River and seeing the polluted water actually catch fire. My school spirit was slightly tarnished when I found out by a show of hands that many more Thousand Oaks students were knowledgeable of the Copenhagen Climate Conference than at Westlake. I have already received emails from students who are interested in starting an SSS chapter. One at TOHS would mean every single high school in CVUSD will have a Students for Solar Schools chapter!
