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

Share

SEIA and its research partner, the Solar Foundation, have built the most comprehensive database known of K-12 schools with solar installations. With data on thousands of schools, the research team has used this database to learn about the characteristics of these systems and trends in this market segment over time. This report will present the results of the data collection and analysis effort, discussing changes in why schools are going solar, where these systems are being installed, how they are being financed, as well as other information relevant to nonprofits, solar companies, and individuals interested in supporting solar on K-12 schools. In addition, this report covers the results of an original analysis looking at the potential for schools currently without solar to pursue their own projects cost-effectively.
