West Green Club
Here is some information on the West Green Club, a student-led coalition launched in 2001 that is committed to advancing environmental sustainability initiatives at West High and our local community. Over the last 16 years, West Green Club has been a driving force behind key sustainability projects, including West Highs new geothermal system, composting, electronics recycling, and lighting efficiency.
Since the start of 2017, they have been working with the Madison Metropolitan School District (MMSD) and the local energy company (Madison Gas & Electric) for the planning, design, and installation of a solar panel array on the roof of Madison West High School. They launched a $50,000 fundraising campaign for this solar panel project in June 2017 and has met with resoundingly positive feedback thus far. They are now looking to reach out to West High alumni about this fundraising campaign and allow individuals and/or entire graduating classes the opportunity to adopt an individual solar panel under their name through a donation of $500 (the cost of the panel).
