Helping Students Shine Through Renewable Energy Education
Solar schools have the unique opportunity to transform their solar arrays into
learning labs for renewable energy, generating rich STEM curriculum connections for students of any age — from elementary schoolers learning about the sun to high schoolers engaging in technical career training.
In 2022 we launched Solar Empowered Schools to extend the benefits of solar energy beyond roofs and into classrooms. From custom student-friendly solar energy dashboards to hands-on technical training, we are proud to play a part in preparing students for STEM careers and empowering youth to actively participate in their clean energy future.
Authentic Learning Opportunities
Real-life STEM Applications
Enthusiasm is contagious, and we’re committed to sharing our passion for clean energy with the next generation. Our renewable energy curriculum is led by Meghan Milo, a former educator who serves on the Virginia’s Board of Education’s Advisory Committee for Career and Technical Education and works with educators and students to bring the promise of solar power into the classroom.
