Silicon Solar & SHS Partnership Makes Headlines
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE | April 23, 2008
Mark Boshnack, staff writer for the Daily Star in Oneonta, NY recently featured an article on the front page of the newspaper outlining and applauding the cooperation between Silicon Solar and Sidney High School; the local school which was gifted a $1,000 dollar SunMaxx Thermosyphon Solar Hot Water System.
Silicon Solar Inc, a Solar Energy company based in Bainbridge, NY recently donated a SunMaxx Solar Hot Water Heater, which the company manufacturers to Sidney High School, the alma mater of company owners Matt and Adam Farrell.
Mr. Boshnack interviewed Matthew Brown, the Solar Hot Water Sales Manager for Silicon Solar and the students in Sidney High School’s Environmental Science Class – the class that assembled and is currently testing the Solar Hot Water System for viability and performance in a number of real world applications, under different weather conditions.
The students, as well as Silicon Solar, are excited about the partnership, and see it as a great opportunity for Silicon Solar to assist in educating a new generation in the basic principles of Renewable Energy and sustainability, two factors that will play important roles in their lives as the United States moves more and more towards the need for a lessening dependency on fossil fuels and foreign oil in order to become more economically and politically stable.
By getting such an early start in learning about the realities of sustainability, Sidney High School students will be qualified for tomorrow’s “green collar jobs”, a term that is being used widely today, and covers everything from selling, designing and installing renewable energy technologies and systems.
