Its summertime, and that means one of our themes is solar energy! As the sun shines its great to see so many schools installing solar panels to help power their educational experience. By 2013 over 500 schools in the United States had installed solar panels, not only reducing environmental impacts, but educating students every day through the usage of solar energy.
