Parkway School District unveils largest solar panel project in state history

ST. LOUIS COUNTY, Mo. (KMOV) -- The Parkway School District in west St. Louis County has completed installation of solar panels on the first of 33 buildings.
After a few more electrical checks, the panels at Barrett’s Elementary School will be connected and start soaking up enough sunshine to generate 5 percent of the school building’s electricity.
The district is avoiding big installation costs by leasing the panels. It’s estimated the solar panels will save the district around $15,000 in the first year and around $1 million dollars over the life of the 20-year contract.
