Solar panel project now provides energy for St. Anselm’s Abbey School
As sustainable energy options become increasingly more important for the well-being of the planet, they have become more accessible and commonplace to put into practice. The expansive 40-acre campus of St. Anselm’s Abbey School in Washington, D.C., now hosts 1,648 solar panels on the premises, generating 1,045,875 kilowatt hours of energy.
St. Anselm’s is a Catholic all-boys preparatory school educating grades 6 through 12 run by Benedictine monks of Saint Anselm’s Abbey.
Abbot James Wiseman, who leads St. Anselm’s Abbey and teaches religion at St. Anselm’s Abbey School, was the first to suggest the solar panel project in 2019.
