Trends in School Solar

 

Solar arrays are popping up on rooftops and parking lot canopies at school campuses across the country. The 2022 Brighter Future Report, published by Generation180 just last month, highlights the growth in the industry, new trends at the national level, and case studies on how schools are going solar. Attendees of this webinar will have the chance to dive into the report findings as well as hear directly about challenges and successes from the teams responsible for some of the nation’s most innovative solar projects.

Speakers from Tucson Unified School District and University of Arizona will discuss how their Community and School Garden Program is cultivating future scientists in agrivoltaics by providing real-world, hands-on research and learning opportunities in science, technology, engineering, and math. Speakers from Pittsburg Unified School District administration will discuss how the district has taken a comprehensive approach to sustainability that includes building electrification, electric vehicles, solar, and battery storage.

Learn from the superintendent and tribal program administrative assistant how the high school on the Blackfeet Indian Reservation is hosting a community solar project to help its neighbors lower their electric bills.

This webinar is hosted in partnership by the Center for Green Schools and Generation180.
