SPOTSYLVANIA COUNTY, VA — Spotsylvania County Public Schools partnered with renewable energy company sPower and other companies and organizations on creating 16 mobile hotspots for the new school year.
In July, sPower issued a challenge grant to fund five mobile hotspots and worked to raise funds for an additional five. Akamai Technologies, Etsy and Kimley-Horn, which are three of sPower’s partners in the Spotsylvania Solar Energy Center, supported the effort.
The Spotsylvania Education Foundation donated funds for one mobile hotspot, and Atlantic Builders donated funds for five mobile hotspots. Since July, individual donors have contributed more than $1,000 toward the effort, the public schools system said.
“We greatly appreciate the support of our community partners and especially thank sPower and Atlantic Builders who have taken the lead in this initiative by supporting five mobile hotspots each,” Dr. S. Scott Baker, SCPS superintendent, said Monday in a statement.
