Lincoln School is a private, all girls, Quaker independent school for grades one through twelve. Lincoln School partnered with Newport Renewables to install a solar array on the flat roof of its gymnasium, which needed a new roof. The 178-panel array was completed and turned online in September 2015. The solar array is expected to generate 64,400 kilowatt-hours of electricity annually, providing 116% of the gymnasium’s annual electricity consumption. The system will offset the equivalent of 49.9 tons of carbon dioxide annually, and generate enough clean energy to power 4.8 homes each year.

The project required a service reconfiguration to safely interconnect the system
