Here comes the sun: Mounds View schools put up solar panels


Solar panels were recently installed on the roof of Chippewa Middle School. Five more Mounds View schools, including Island Lake, Pike Lake, Pinewood elementary school, and Irondale and Mounds View high schools will have panels installed by the end of the year. (submitted photo)

Some roofs are meant to do far more than protect a building from weather, critters and a beating sun. 

According to Chippewa Middle School principal Rob Reetz, some roofs do all that and generate energy as well.
