Under an agreement between the companies, members of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers will complete the high-voltage electrical work, and students from the Stafford Technical Center will get hands-on educational experience installing the panels.
"We wanted to make full use of this project as an educational tool, and continue to build on our strong relationship with the IBEW," Young said in February. "CV Solar's excitement about working with both groups was a big plus. Some bidders said they would do so, but CV Solar's enthusiasm was obvious and genuine."
The solar project includes over 200 solar panels, each 3 by 5 feet wide. The project, along with Glen Station, a CVPS hydro facility across the highway, will include a renewable education program where students will learn about two renewable projects at one site.
