On April 6th 2017, the Brightfields team presented at the Scituate Science Spectacular, an annual district-wide science fair that celebrates science, fun and community spirit.
Students, parents, local companies, volunteers and interested community members from across the region came together in a packed gymnasium to explore science in Scituate. As part of the festivities, Brightfields’ Kyle Miller and Bill Pedersen discussed renewable energy and the 3.0 MW solar array located on the town’s municipal landfill with students and community members.
“I was very impressed with the students’ understanding of solar energy,” stated Brightfields’ Kyle Miller. “The students were eager to learn about Scituate’s solar array and the numerous benefits the array provides to the town and the environment. The students were fascinated with the solar array’s real-time production data and could not believe the beneficial offsets the system has accrued over time. The future of solar energy is bright because communities like Scituate continue to embrace clean, renewable energy.”
