Brighter Future: A Study on Solar in U.S. Schools


Study on Solar in U.S. Schools

There are approximately 5,500 schools across the country with solar installations that are saving money on electric bills, educating students about clean energy, and ensuring a brighter future for the next generation. A dramatic decline in the cost of solar panels combined with new financing options has now made solar widely accessible, creating tremendous untapped potential among the majority of our schools still without solar.

SEIA, along with our partners at The Solar Foundation and Generation 180, have developed Brighter Future: A Study on Solar in U.S. Schools, a comprehensive report that explores the current state of solar deployment on K-12 schools nationwide. The report, available via the form below, includes analysis and case studies, but if you would like to view a full database of the U.S. schools with solar systems, download the spreadsheet here
