Consider these facts:
There are about 125,000 U.S. elementary and secondary schools, of which 72,000 are solar-ready. However, only 5,489 U.S. schools (under 8%) had gone solar through 2017.
Researchers have identified 450 individual U.S. school districts which could each save more than $1 million over 30 years by installing solar.
If all 72,000 of America’s “solar-ready” schools were to deploy typical systems, the total energy production for the schools would equal 5,400 MW – an amount exceeding a third of the total solar photovoltaic (PV) capacity installed in the entire U.S.
That’s why we need Solar Schools 2025, a project of Renewable Nation. We want to bring solar to your child’s school … and other schools like it.
Solar Schools 2025, a project of Renewable Nation, targets 50 schools a year to “buddy up” with schools that already have gone solar, a step-by-step package of materials, and a weekly series of Webinars about how to go solar. Solar Schools 2025 is recruiting the first 50 schools for its program now and applications can be made through the Renewable Nation app.
