THE BRONX - A Bronx High School is participating in a pilot program to install solar panels in an effort to make New York City more environmentally friendly.

Herbert H. Lehman High School will have the panels running by August, according to the Department of Education.

John Shea, who manages city school facilities, says the project is part a program to install panels on four city-owned buildings, including the Bronx high school.

"This is more than anything about clean power and greenhouse gas reduction," said Shea. "The plan is to make New York City the greatest, greenest city in the world and [solar power] is a big part of it."
