Solar energy is a more
fiscally AND environmentally responsible
means of power our learning institutions.
Nearly 140,000 K-12 schools, colleges, universities, and technical schools operate in the United States. Only 3,700 (2.6%) utilize clean, renewable solar energy to operate their facilities.
Relying on fossil fuels to power our schools and universities sends the wrong message to future thought leaders.
Reduce Operational Costs
Schools, colleges, and universities routinely face budgeting challenges.
With little-to-no money down, solar power reduces operational costs:
- An average K-12 school saves $21,000/year in operating costs
- Colleges/Universities can save well over $100,000/year (results vary based on sized and location)
Operational savings can be reinvested back into the school for:

Reduce Carbon Footprint
Natural resources aren’t limitless. Mankind’s usage rate of available resources is unsustainable, and burning of fossil fuels damages the o-zone layer. Solar power reduces your carbon footprint:
An average school saves more than 80 tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions per year.
An average school reduces nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions by 11 pounds/year. NOx creates ground-level o-zone, which adversely affects the human respiratory system.

Leading the Way to a Sustainable Future
Many states in the Mid-Atlantic are already in the top-10 nationwide for solar utilization by schools. But anything short of 100% is lost contribution to a brighter tomorrow.
