North Sanpete Middle School
Ribbon cutting postponed at middle school
Plans have been postponed for a ribbon cutting to celebrate the solar array at North Sanpete Middle School.
According to North Sanpete School District Superintendent Sam Ray, Rocky Mountain Power added the additional requirement of effective grounding for the system at the last minute. This necessitated engineering work and meant the school district had to order extra transformers.
The power system is scheduled to be online by the end of February, and once the system is operational, a new ribbon-cutting ceremony will be scheduled.
Two weeks ago, the school district had a major power bump that affected several systems, including PowerSchool.
District and school technology staff have worked to remedy this situation. Staff at all the schools have been working to assure that all grading information is restored.
