ISLESBORO — Islesboro Central School celebrated the completion of its solar array with a “Flip the Switch” ceremony Wednesday, Oct. 9. 

The solar array, installed by ReVision Energy, will provide the island school with 40 percent of its electrical needs. 

At the community ceremony, fifth grade student Jaykob Zollman flipped the switch towards a more fuel efficient school. 

The school’s curriculum includes a strong focus on best practices regarding sustainability, according to a press release.

“The solar array is a welcome source of study for students, shrinks the school's carbon footprint, and takes advantage of clean, renewable energy,” said Islesboro Head of School Charles Hamm.
