Local high school awarded $2,500 grant from PG&E for science project

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - PG&E has awarded $2,500 to a science-geared group at Independence High School in order to create the next best source of alternative energy.

The "Falcon Autistic Solar Team" received the money to continue working on a project  that explores the possibilities of hydrogen fuel cells as an alternative energy source. 

This award is the second "bright ideas" grant that the group has received with the help of teacher Kevin Crosby.

FAST is a group that was created back in 2010 for higher functioning autism students to visit other Kern County schools and spread the word about solar power.
