National Solar Schools Census


Do you represent a K-12 school that has gone solar? The Solar Foundation (TSF) wants to hear from you! With support from the U.S. Department of Energy’s SunShot Solar Outreach Partnership and the Solar Energy Industries Association, TSF’s National Solar Schools Census effort seeks to build the most comprehensive database yet of K-12 solar schools, understand the challenges schools face in going solar, and learn how solar has been used as a teaching tool in these schools.

While TSF’s Solar Schools Census team has been successful in compiling a database of over 3,000 solar schools, they still need help from school administrators, teachers, and others involved in local K-12 education systems to better understand the wide range of experiences with going solar. If you represent a solar school and have 15 to 20 minutes to participate in a short interview with their team, please take a moment to connect with them using this brief formRepresentatives from TSF’s Solar Schools Census team will follow up with you to schedule a time to discuss your school’s project in greater detail. Select interviewees and their schools may be featured prominently in the final National Solar Schools Census report, to be published later this spring.

With the National Solar Schools Census, TSF hopes to better understand the needs of schools interested in going solar and to help communicate the successes of those that have already done so, but they can’t do it without your participation! Get connected with them today!
