Economic Importance of Solar Schools

According to information from the Department of Energy, public schools nationwide are “spending more than $8 billion per year on energy.” Extrapolating historical trends of energy cost per kilowatt hour in California, it’s easy to see how energy expenses can go even higher if schools do not generate renewable energy and adopt efficiency measures. The graph is of residential and commercial rates. School rates are often slightly padded, but they are not immune to rate increases.

Anitoch High to Apply for Solar Grant

solarpanelOver the next few months, Students for Solar Schools plans on helping Elizabeth Valencia applying for the PG&E Solar Schools grant. The school is in the utility company PG&E’s territory. This means that they can apply for a 1kW solar display system under their Solar Schools program. We will continue to help the school through out the process and hopefully they will be one of 40 schools chosen for the solar panel grant.
