COMMUNITY LEADERS CELEBRATE GROUND BREAKING OF SCHOOL SOLAR ARRAY
October 30, 2013 (VINCENTOWN, NJ) – Local and county officials today joined the Southampton Board of Education, solar system owner Marina Energy and solar provider Ray Angelini, Inc. (RAI) to celebrate the groundbreaking of a 554 kW solar photovoltaic system on the grounds of School #2 and School #3. Superintendent Michael Harris and School Board President Betty Wright joined with executives from Marina Energy, RAI, RYBREAD Architects, and Board of Education members, Russell Hann, Joseph Caputo, Jeffery Hicks and Suzanne Phillips to mark
 
the start of the solar project which, over 15 years, is projected to save Southampton taxpayers $1,056,000 with zero taxpayer dollars used for the construction or operation of the system. Marina Energy will own the system and sell the electricity to the school district at a discounted rate for 15 years.
“This is yet another historic day in Southampton. Even the rain couldn’t dampen our spirits today for the ground breaking of the Solar Project, although this project has taken over two years to begin, I am thrilled that it has finally come to fruition. This is a win win situation for everyone, not only will we be saving energy, we will recognize a cost savings of approximately one million dollars over the next fifteen years. We will also reap the benefit of an outdoor classroom experience with the  planting of the buffering zone that will enhance the area.., When the solar PV system is operational, it will generate approximately 98% of the electricity used in School #2 and School #3, all without impacting our environment.”
said Board of Education President, Wright.
 Superintendent Harris stated “Our solar project will provide an excellent educational experience for our students and residents alike as a result of the landscaping that will occur as part of the buffering plan for the solar ground array. The landscaping will include wild grasses, wildflowers and shrubbery.We are planning on using this area for environmental education classes.” “Marina is proud to be a partner with Southampton Schools to help drive the cost of energy down,”
said Stephen Poniatowicz, Sr. VP & COO, Marina Energy.
“Bringing this project to construction has been a long journey,”
commented Joe Joyce, Senior Vice President, Sales & Marketing, RAI
. “We’re happy to be chosen to design and build it. It is a testament to the dedication of the Southampton Board of Education to both save taxpayers money and provide an environmental educational opportunity.”
