SolarCity has announced that the company plans to connect 100 solar learning station installations through the Pacific Gas and Electric Company's (PG&E) Solar Schools Program, which raises renewable energy awareness in educational centers across California.
SolarCity developed the solar learning stations to provide community touch-points for experiencing solar electric generation and illustrating how energy is produced, further encouraging communities to explore clean, renewable energy alternatives.
The PG&E Solar Schools Program is funded charitably by PG&E, in partnership with two nonprofit implementation partners: the National Energy Education Development Project and the Foundation for Environmental Education.
‘The benefit of increasing education around solar is that those lessons make ripples across the community, encouraging the adoption of clean power at home,’ says SolarCity CEO Lyndon Rive. ‘It's worked in California – now we're asking other utility partners to join us in carrying this powerful educational tool across the country.’
