Wakefield Country Day School Goes Green with New Solar System installed by Virtue Solar

Virtue Solar helps Wakefield Country Day School go green with a 74kW roof-mounted solar system, which offsets a portion of their energy usage.

Virtue Solar is excited to announce it has completed installation of a cutting-edge solar energy system on Wakefield Country Day School in Rappahannock, Virginia. With a capacity of 74.2kW, this roof- mounted solar panel system represents a significant step towards energy sustainability and cost savings for the school.


The new solar system is projected to generate clean energy equivalent to burning one and a half million pounds of coal, planting thirty-four thousand trees or driving one hundred and thirty-three thousand fewer miles each year, contributing substantially to the school's commitment to reducing its carbon footprint and fostering environmental stewardship.

Head of School Paul Larner noted:
"We are delighted to have this state-of-the-art system in place due to the generosity of numerous donors and a direct reimbursement program enacted recently by the federal government. We will receive a very rapid payback on our investment and I am delighted we can lead the effort as the first school in our area to install solar. Virtue Solar did a fantastic job every step of the way."

Virtue Solar, a leading provider of commercial solar installations, worked closely with Wakefield Country Day School to design and install the solar system, ensuring maximum efficiency and sustainability.

"We are proud to partner with Wakefield Country Day School on this important initiative," said Deven Barkley, Virtue Solar's Commercial Director. "By harnessing the power of solar energy, the school is not only reducing its carbon footprint but also exhibiting leadership in environmental responsibility."
