“Solar power is going to be absolutely essential to meeting growing energy demands while staving off climate change.”

– Ramez Naam, Clean Energy Advocate, and Award-Winning Author

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, electricity production was responsible for the largest share of greenhouse gas emissions of any sector at 29% in 2015. Ramping up the engagement of students in the process of expanding solar installations reduces carbon emissions while providing innovative, real-world learning opportunities, and offers considerable long-term financial savings for schools.
