Pennsylvania has one of the largest public education systems in the country, serving 1.7 million students.
Bringing clean energy to Pennsylvania schools would have a positive impact on a generation of future leaders.

Generation180’s campaign is working to ensure that all Pennsylvania schools can access the benefits of clean energy, including reduced energy bills, enhanced STEM education, workforce development, and healthier communities.

Speak up for the Solar for Schools Act
