Educational Resources

Our children can learn at an early age about alternative energy sources and serious conservation.  One of the best ways to teach them is by actually implementing an educational solar power system at home and at school to power actual electrical loads and get them off the grid.  In addition, children can assist parents and teachers in reducing electrical consumption at home and school.

Any solar installation company can provide and install these systems at just about any budget.  Why not get a business or two to sponsor one of these systems? 

Digital displays can monitor the system performance or they can be connected to a PC or even the school's website.  How about that for an educational experience?

The annual Solar Tour is also an excellent way for students to see actual systems powering real world homes and businesses.  Check out the main page for the latest tour info.
