why no solar in Sharon?

So I went down Still Meadow very recently (Friday-8:15AM) and well, to say the light went off, would be a bit of an understatement. Why oh why isn't the Town of Sharon, and Sharon Center School in particular, doing something solar? You have a building roof which has full sun exposure from early morning to late in the afternoon, seven days a week, 365 days a year. And we do nothing? Heck, I remember being a student there forty plus years ago, and we had to close the shades to keep the heat out (uhhh---hello!) There were blinds in the 50"s wing,(now the upper grades) and roll-down dark green-backed shades in the original building (now lower grades). And that was the days of single-pane glass.

Come on Board of Education, and Town of Sharon officials. Make a start. Do some research for something large, but can start small. Show our kids. Show our parents. Show our community. You get enough bad publicity without even trying. Why not be pro-active, and get something good started? Cornwall has. 

Lead by example. It's not too late. Fact is, it's probably the very best time!
