To celebrate Earth Week last week, the Queens Center mall announced it will be installing solar panels on its roof and the adjacent parking garage over the next few months.

To kick off the initiative, a group of area children were educated about sustainable living and its positive impacts on everyday life during a kid-friendly Earth Day discussion last Thursday at the mall.

The children were also taught where our food, water and electricity come from and the various uses for solar energy.

The solar panels installed at the mall will produce 12 megawatts of electricity a year, enough to power 10,000 homes.

Welcome to the discussion.
