WEST MILFORD, N.J. -- West Milford school officials are considering installing solar panels on as many as four of the district's eight schools by 2016, according to NorthJersey.com.
Before the district can move forward, a structural review is required to ensure all of the buildings can handle the added weight of the solar panels and ballasts. Voters would also have to approve an $8 million bond to replace the roofs on both the high school and middle school, NorthJersey.com reported.
Schools targeted for the solar project include: West Milford High School, Macopin Middle School, Marshall Hill Elementary and Westbrook Elementary, NorthJersey.com said.
