Innovative Schools Are Earning an A+ in Solar

“Solar enables schools to save money, enrich learning and keep teachers in the classroom, all while providing local jobs and generating emissions-free electricity.”

Andrea Luecke
President and Executive Director
The Solar Foundation

In a report card deserving honor roll, a comprehensive, first-of-its-kind new study says America’s K-12 schools have shown explosive growth in their use of solar energy over the last decade, soaring from 303 kilowatts (kW) of installed capacity to 457,000 kW, while reducing carbon emissions by 442,799 metric tons annually.

That’s the equivalent of saving 50 million gallons of gasoline a year or taking nearly 100,000 cars off U.S. highways.

Featured Project:

San Antonio School Municipal Solar Project

The San Antonio Elementary School took great strides to make their school eco-friendly. The entire school was involved in this 81.42kw solar project, which made it a great learning experience for both students and adults. With just one solar array, San Antonio Elementary School was able to aggregate enough energy on their school meter to be able to use the credits to save on energy costs.

Students at San Antonio Elementary School celebrate their new solar installation.

Brighter Future

A Study on Solar in U.S. Schools was prepared by The Solar Foundation (TSF) – with data and analysis support from the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) – and funded through a grant provided by the U.S. Department of Energy’s SunShot program. Most importantly, the report shows that thousands of schools are already cutting their utility bills by choosing solar, using the savings to pay for teacher salaries and textbooks.

There are 3,752 K-12 schools in the United States with solar installations, meaning nearly 2.7 million students attend schools with solar energy systems. The solar energy systems have a combined capacity of 490 megawatts (MW) and generate roughly 642,000 megawatt-hours (MWh) of electricity each year, which represents a combined $77.8 million per year in utility bills ‒ an average of almost $21,000 per year per school.
