GOOD news! Students Help Design Solar High School
Warning: date(): It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier. We selected the timezone 'UTC' for now, but please set date.timezone to select your timezone. in /hermes/bosnaweb03a/b2374/ipg.planetearthcom/cp/data/cache/templates/news.view-dbcc2f88.php on line 200 Feb 9th, 2013 by Susan Gonzales

Over the last nine months, juniors and seniors in Jim Maycomb’s Sustainable Development and Design class at Blue Desert High School have worked with local architect Ana Jemez to design the first 100% solar powered high school in the country.  Scheduled to open on the first day of the next school year, Solar Vista High School will serve 1,200 students in four grades and generate all its power from the passive and active solar systems incorporated into its design.   Read more here.
