The Princeton Public Schools (PPS) Board of Education (BOE) is committed to planning ahead, working towards a July 29 deadline to submit an application to the state to place a major maintenance bond referendum on the ballot in January 2022, so that work to replace leaking roofs at several schools can start by the summer of 2022..
Sustainable Princeton Executive Director Molly Jones applauded the possibility of solar panels on the schools’ new roofs. “It looks as if they could put on panels that could provide up to 40 percent of their overall energy needs,” she said. “This is a substantial sum that could save money for taxpayers.”
