Sunset High School is reaping the benefits from solar panels installed at the school.
Teacher Tom O'Connor applied for a Blue Sky grant from Pacific Power and the school was awarded $20,000, which paid for 18 solar panels.
O'Connor and the high schoolers installed the solar panels on the roof of the school themselves.
He wanted to help the school save money on electricity by harnessing the sun's energy, but also teach his students about solar energy and how to install the panels.
