Southern Indiana Project Highlighted in the News

Veregy’s newest K-12 solar installation at Borden-Henryville School Corporation is gaining media attention. WDRB, a local news station based in Louisville, featured this Southern Indiana school district in recent news, highlighting the rooftop solar project and detailing the savings, both dollars and energy, that Borden-Henryville is already bringing in through this project. 

Veregy worked with Borden-Henryville last February to develop and design a guaranteed energy savings project, which would save the district over $8.1 Million over the next 25 years. Freeing up this amount of money allows Borden-Henryville to spend this money where it truly matters – in the classroom. Says Superintendent Johnny Budd, “We’ve cut our energy usage in half.” 

In addition to the savings, Borden-Henryville is planning to use this renewable energy project as a teaching tool for the students. Veregy also included “solar wagons” upon completion of the project. These wagons are designed to give students a more hands-on perspective on how solar panels work and allows teachers to plan lessons focused on renewable energy and energy savings. “Students can see exactly what we’re doing, not only to hear about it, and maybe read about it in the paper, but also be hands-on,” said Principal Charlie Gardner.
