TAMPA BAY -

Some Bay area schools that also serve as emergency shelters are getting free solar installations and battery backup systems.

The new systems are from a grant from Progress Energy Florida, and is part of a program called SunSense that has a goal of increasing renewable energy education.

The schools were chosen based on their commitment to energy efficiency and renewable energy education, number of students, the shelters capacity and the schools location.

In Citrus County, Citrus High School and Citrus Springs Middle schools will receive the new solar technology.

Other schools in the Bay area receiving the systems include Chasco Elementary in Port Richey, Davenport School of the Arts in Davenport, and Palm Harbor Middle and and Sanderlin Middle schools in Pinellas County.
