The Solar School Initiative
The Foundation for Environmental Education is partnering with Pacific Gas and Electric Company to bring renewable energy education into under-served communities through highly-visible solar installation systems.
Whether it be a 1 kW solar panel on a pole, or a roof-mounted system on a non-profit building, each is hooked up to an online data monitoring system so that the community can view the energy production of the system and learn about the environmental impact of that system.
This year we are working with PG&E to create a new grant program for 2012. We are testing several different grant models during 2011 and check back with us later this year to find out what we are planning for 2012.
Our mission is to not only inspire our communities to learn more about the future of renewable energy, but to teach them how to conserve, produce and respect, this very precious resource we call energy.
