A Bright Future: Commercial Solar Power Solutions for Educational Facilities

Utility costs are one of the few areas of a school’s budget that is difficult to trim without negatively affecting the student experience. Because of this, a growing number of administrators have been exploring the benefits of commercial solar power solutions for their educational facilities. Many school buildings have flat, large rooftops (ideal for rooftop solar photovoltaic) making them a good candidate for solar conversion, especially those with large campuses. In addition, many campuses also often have school parking lots […] Read More »
