Bishop Connolly High School to go 100% solar by 2023

FALL RIVER, Mass. (WLNE) — Bishop Connolly High School in Fall River is installing solar panels.

The school is partnering with an energy company to cover the roof with the panels.

The panels will eventually cover all of the school’s electricity needs.

Bishop Connolly Principal Kathleen St. Laurent said that the school will save about $2 million dollars over 25 years.

“It provides natural resources to our school, environmentally sound and is line with our commitment with resident to be good stewards of our environment,” she said.

The project is in the development stage, with plans to go into effect by fall of 2023.
