Mercer Island High School senior Harry Bolson has spearheaded the first solar energy project at his school. Last Friday, more than 100 students, faculty, city representatives and community members congregated in the MIHS Commons to celebrate the school’s new 1.61kw solar panel system. Installed on the roof of the Commons, the $8,675 panel will power the school store with 2,000 kilowatt-hours of electricity a year. But Bolson’s work, which began as his senior culminating project, doesn’t stop here. He hopes to raise $10,000 more to double the school’s solar energy system. The MIHS marketing class will take over the solar project next year after Bolson graduates.
