Teach, lead, inspire!


The large flat roof of a school building is a great place for solar panels. Using the space to generate clean solar electricity will cut energy costs and make a lasting impression on students.

“Not only will these systems contribute to environmental sustainability in our region, but the cost savings will also contribute to the financial stability of our schools in the years ahead.” – Viki Ingersoll, Energy Manager of the Catholic Diocese schools of Buffalo.

Parents, faculty, and the community appreciate a school’s effort to reduce spending while creating a richer learning experience. Students want to be a part of what happens around them. Solar schools bring a real world solar energy experience into the classroom.

“Students can become a partner in the daily monitoring of solar generation and any correlation to our energy consumption and cost. We dedicated our curriculum fair to the topic of green energy.” – Paul Pinto, Principal of St. Francis of Assisi School.

School administrators are leaders in their communities. Using solar energy shows leadership in energy efficiency, sustainability, and environmental stewardship. A school with a solar energy system is a better place to work and learn.

“Beyond the cost savings, solar power is a key component of [our college’s] long-term sustainability strategy as we seek innovative ways to reduce our carbon footprint.” – Jim Dishaw, Senior Director of Facilities Management and Planning at Le Moyne College.
