Community Benefit

Completion of our project will bring awareness of alternate environmental options . More importantly, it will be an inspiration to other students, groups and community members to find creative and environmentally friendly choices for generating power. We will decrease the carbon footprint of our school by reducing our reliance on non-renewable energy sources. Walter Murray students will demonstrate that initiative, the development of community partnerships, diligence and environmental conscientiousness make a difference.
