Using Solar to offset Energy Cost and Reduce Carbon Emissions and live an overall better way of living in Schools
Solar power has made its major impact on the environment and has now taken a new role to save teachers jobs. Schools have also lead the way by going solar to mitigate carbon emissions of pollutants that are harmful for health and the environment. Investments in solar energy provide schools with many benefits aside from saving the environment.
The large flat roof of a school building is a perfect place to install solar panels to generate clean solar electricity that will leave a lasting impression on students. Children are learning hands on about renewable energy while schools also save money. Schools are an excellent place to use solar energy. They are open during the day when the sun is out and when it is possible to obtain the most benefits from its power.
The benefits reported on schools that have converted to solar:
- Financial Stability – schools choose to go solar as they saw an opportunity to save money. Facilities managers recognize the value of solar energy as it provides a long-term hedge against the increase in utility rates and school boards and administrators seem to be attracted to the technology’s perk in cost savings.
- The cost savings positively impacted on the budget. The savings have been used to reduce electricity costs, retrain staff and improve education therefore avoiding cuts to programs and teachers.
- Solar allowed schools to expand their educational opportunities by including educating the students about the physics of solar energy and how it compares to other sources of electricity.
- Solar pool heating systems has shown to reduce pool heating costs
Estimates by Solar Energy Industries Association and other research Groups have proven that over the past three years, solar power costs have fallen by more than a third in schools. Since school administrators are recognized leaders in their communities, using solar energy shows leadership in energy efficiency, sustainability and environmental awareness. Schools can also lead by educating the community as a whole about all the benefits of using solar to offset energy cost while reducing carbon emissions.
