Pennsylvania has one of the largest public education systems in the United States, serving more than 1.7 million students. The state can pave the way to become a clean energy leader if all K-12 schools switched to solar. Our campaign is working to ensure that all Pennsylvania schools can access the benefits of going solar, including reduced energy bills, enhanced STEM education, workforce development, and healthier communities.
