WINHALL — Mountain School at Winhall recently received a two solar workstations Sunbolt that will allow them to continue to move forward in utilizing Vermont as their classroom. The gift will help the school promote global citizenship, reduce its carbon footprint, and get its students outdoors to learn and play.

Sunbolt's donation of two of their models, a Dash and Momentum, makes MSW the first school in northern New England to be equipped with solar charging workstations. The hallmarks of all Sunbolt green power products are exceptional solar design, engineering, architectural and aesthetic standards.

The Dash and Momentum are ideal charging stations for laptops, tablets, and other mobile electronics that require a power supply, and include an ample illuminated workspace for individuals or groups of students. These solar power canopy innovations are used on commercial grounds around the globe, including college and corporate campuses, sports complexes, government agency campuses, parks, and other recreational areas.

"Sunbolt's generous donation has allowed MSW to better its outdoor classroom spaces and has enhanced students' access to resources outdoors to complete labs, studies, and research," said Peter Ahlfeld, MSW head of school. "I'm excited, for starters, to have our middle school math and science classes study and learn hands-on how the solar panels on these workstations create and allow us to use solar energy."
