BATESVILLE, AR (KAIT) - The Batesville School District is seeing steady progress in their energy waste reduction.

The frames for the school's solar energy panels have been put in place, and panel installation should start within the next two weeks.

They plan to officially be plugged into the grid by the end of September.

Dr. Michael Hester said the district is the only K-12 school in the state with a solar project.

The school district approved the plans for the state's largest energy waste reduction plans in March and has been working on renovations since.
