St. Margaret Catholic School
 Lake Charles, LA

This recent installation was formed and organized by a student at St. Margaret, Thomas Breaux.  He started this project as a part of his requirements to achieve Eagle Scout with the Boy Scouts of America.  This 1kw gird-tie PV system will run lights and equipment for his former teacher, Judy Reeves' science classroom.  The project was designed to give Judy Reeves a "net zero" classroom.  She got grants from,, Entergy, Wal-Mart (the environmental grants part of the store), and individual organizations in the area.

They will be on the 2008 solar tour, so plan on attending the first solar school in Louisiana!  Directions and address is provided on the tour website.
