LIGHTING THE WAY TO SOLAR
Solar Assistance for Schools
Through our Solar For All Schools campaign, Generation180 is leading a national movement of schools advancing the transition to clean energy. When schools go solar, they can save on utility costs that can go directly back to classrooms and utilize technology to enhance STEM and vocational education.
Generation180 can help you move forward on the path to clean energy by providing your school or district with the information, resources and support that you need to get started.
