SCHOOLS ON SOLAR™ Solar Energy & Weather Data
The main focus of Schools on Solar is education. Schools on Solar will provide students information on energy conservation and renewable energy. Developing an early understanding of how energy is produced and used provides the foundation they'll need to become our future leaders and to help solve the bigger energy and environmental problems we face as a nation and a community. The first two systems have been installed at Oak Ridge Elementary School and Montford Middle School.
