The Bethlehem School District has embraced solar power. Tangent Energy Solutions has completed solar energy generation installations at 3 Bethlehem Area schools. The three schools are Spring Garden and Buchanan Elementary schools plus East Hills Middle School. There are an additional 2 schools that are scheduled to be commissioned in the coming weeks.
    The 5 schools in total will provide the Bethlehem Area school district with roughly 2 million kwh (kilowatt-hour) per year of clean electricity and save nearly 2.75 million pounds per year of CO2 and other greenhouse gases.

Bethlehem’s new south side restaurant and bar “The Bookstore” is located at 336 Adam’s Street. The restaurant setting is “retro” and lit with flickering votive lights and makes you feel like you are stepping back in time to a 1920’s speakeasy.
