The Solar Foundation (TSF) and its research partners at SEIA just released the National Solar Schools Census , and it's chock-full of information about solar energy use in our nation's schools. The Center for Green Schools at USGBC aims to support all schools in becoming healthy, safe and resource-efficient places for teaching and learning, and putting numbers to the accomplishments of U.S. schools is getting more and more important. According to the census, more than 3,700 solar energy systems exist on K-12 schools in the U.S., and nearly 2.7 million students are in daily contact with the technology. Other interesting facts include: The 490 megawatts (MW) of photovoltaic solar capacity already installed on American schools generate roughly 642,000 megawatt-hours (MWh) of electricity each year. This is equivalent to $77.8 million worth of utility bills and enough clean, re...
