DENTON, Md. (AP) — Three solar power systems will help provide electricity for schools on Maryland’s Eastern Shore.

The solar power arrays are expected to be completed by September. They will cover eight acres surrounding North Caroline High School, Colonel Richardson Middle and High Schools, Greensboro Elementary School and the Career and Technology Center.

Washington Gas and Energy Systems announced Wednesday that it has signed a contract with the Caroline County Public Schools and Kenyon Energy for the project. Washington Gas says it will own and operate the systems, and Kenyon will install the 8,200 panels.

Assistant Superintendent Milton Nagel says the solar power panels will not only provide electricity for the schools but also serve as an educational vehicle for students.
