Solar Energy Helps Keep the Electricity on at McKendree University
Solar energy is now helping to power the electricity and reduce energy costs at the McKendree University bookstore and The Lair student activity center. A 28-panel, 7.2 kilowatt solar photovoltaic system recently installed atop the flat roof of the Deneen Student Center building was activated on Sept. 26.
“This project demonstrates our ongoing commitment to affordable renewable energy and sustainability,” said Dr. James Dennis, president.
Chamber "Sign Project" Underway!
The Lebanon Chamber of Commerce is working on several projects for 2013, one of which is a series of "Welcome Signs" to be placed at the 4 entry points of the city. The first sign that they are working to erect will be located at the end of Belleville Street ("Short Cut")where it meets Hwy. 50 (across from the old cement factory.) This sign will have a cement base, brick columns on each end, and a removable/changeable center marquee. The center section can be prepared then swapped out at the sign itself.
