Barretts is the first Parkway school to install a solar panel system, but before long all Parkway schools will be outfitted with 3,267 solar panels--the largest installation among Missouri schools. Those solar panels are enough to cover more than 30 tennis courts and provide 2.2 percent of the district’s power.
