    More Schools Are Teaching Solar By Using Solar

    Solar energy use grows rapidly at K-12 schools, report says; New study says nearly 5,500 K-12 schools in the United States use solar power

    Mike Kennedy, November 29, 2017 (American School ands University)

    “Some 5,489 K-12 schools in the United States—4.4 percent of all public and private schools—use solar energy…[Brighter Future: A Study on Solar in U.S. Schools attributes the sharp rise in solar energy use to a rapid decline in the cost of installing solar systems. The average price of a solar school installation has dropped 67 percent in the last 10 years, and 19 percent in 2016 alone…The study says that nearly 4 million students attend U.S. schools that employ solar power. The combined capacity of those systems—910 megawatts—is 86 percent greater that the capacity of school solar systems in 2014…In addition to lower installation costs, schools have more financing options that minimize up-front investment in solar systems, the study found. In recent years, most schools have paid for their solar installations through power purchase agreements, in which a third party finances, builds, owns and maintains the system. This enables schools and districts to buy solar with minimal initial cost…” click here for more
