Solar for Academics improves the quality of education and opportunity in impoverished communities by implementing solar energy in schools.
This model provides solar energy for schools without power or with intermittent power in order that students may have an uninterrupted source of energy. It includes plans to train solar technicians on the ground for maintenance and new installations. This blueprint is novel in its integration into the local economy.
They work with local solar contractors and laborers in order to connect local solar-savvy companies with the school as well as provide work and help stimulate the local economy. The installation will be overseen by their team.
They supplement the installation of the solar panels by teaching a technical solar pv training course. This training will help make sure the system is properly maintained as well as provide students with a new set of skills. They will also teach a class on the general benefits of renewable energy so that the school body may better understand what their new system has to offer, such as access to the internet and countless new learning materials.
