CASE STUDY
Catherine Cook School: 226 West Schiller Street, Chicago

Solar and Wind Hybrid System

Catherine Cook School features a state of the art Solar/Wind Hybrid System that includes a 1.080kW Solar PV array and the first of its kind 4kW UGE Grid-Tied Vertical Axis Wind

Turbine (VAWT) on a school in Chicago.

The 4kW UGE VAWT is anticipated to produce 7,000kwh of electricity per year assuming

an average wind speed of 10 mph with the potential for 18,000kwh in higher wind averages. Not affected by the direction of the wind, VAWTs make good use of wind in areas where the wind changes direction frequently or quickly, and ideal for rural, suburban and urban applications, including rooftop installations.
CASE STUDY
Bannockburn School: 2165 Telegraph Road, Bannockburn
Solar PV System

Bannockburn School will be able to educate the students and demonstrate the use of clean energy at their school with the recently installed solar PV system while being friendly to the earth. Bannockburn features a state of the art 1.080kW Photovoltaic (PV) Solar array. Solar panels convert sunlight directly into electricity, which is then used to offset some electricity. This is a minimal amount considering the small size of the system, the main benefit is the educational opportunity for the students and environmental benefits.

The Solar PV array is expected to produce 900kwh a month or 1,0800+ kwh per year total. This system is made up of 36 panels and features built-in online monitoring that allows the students to see real time data on the energy production of the system.

Bannockburn School also joins the rest of the school community in IL to offset carbon emissions and can be viewed on www.illinoissolarschools.org. The Illinois Clean Energy Foundation offers teachers resources that provide downloadable lesson plans for teachers to utilize in teaching students about the solar PV system as well as workshops. Another valuable site for teachers is eia.doe.gov/kids. Besides the educational benefits, this systems will allow the school to reduce their environmental impact by offsetting 14,800 pounds of carbon emissions per year that is equivalent to burning about 15,030 miles of driving and planting 22 trees in one year.
CASE STUDY
Old St. Mary's Catholic School: 1500 S. Michicago Ave, Chicago
Solar PV System

Old St Marys Catholic School will be able to educate the students and demonstrate the use of clean energy at their school with the recently installed solar PV system while being friendly to the earth. Old St Marys features a state of the art 10.0kW Photovoltaic (PV) Solar array. Solar panels convert sunlight directly into electricity, which is then used to offset some electricity. This is a minimal amount considering the small size of the system, the main benefit is the educational opportunity for the students and environmental benefits.

The Solar PV array is expected to produce 1000kwh a month or 12,000+ kwh per year total. This system is made up of 40 panels and features built-in online monitoring that allows the students to see real time data on the energy production of the system.

Old St Marys Catholic School also joins the rest of the school community in IL to offset carbon emissions and can be viewed on www.illinoissolarschools.org. The Illinois Clean Energy Foundation offers teachers resources that provide downloadable lesson plans for teachers to utilize in teaching students about the solar PV system as well as workshops. Another valuable site for teachers is eia.doe.gov/kids. Besides the educational benefits, this systems will allow the school to reduce their environmental impact by offsetting 16,804 pounds (lbs) of carbon emissions per year that is equivalent to burning 928 gallons of gasoline or planting 21.2 trees in one year.
