Two Citrus schools get solar power

John Colasanti, Citrus County School District maintenance coordinator, describes a set of solar panels installed at Citrus High School in 2013. Colasanti said the panels provide power to the school’s cafeteria, which also serves as an emergency shelter, in the event of a power outage.

Kate Betsko, president of the League of Women Voters (LWV) of Citrus County, would like to see solar panels on every roof in Citrus County.

Well, maybe that’s pushing it, but at least more than what is already out there.
