Solar Schools installs solar electricity panels on school roofs across the nation. While the primary goal of the campaign is to harness solar power, which emits fewer greenhouse gas emissions than fossil fuels, Solar Schools also aims to educate students and parents about how solar panels work. Each installation puts environmental consciousness in kids’ minds early on. The campaign also provides teacher training and workshops about sustainable energy. Most schools also receive live data so students can check out how much electricity their panels create.
