GreenPower: Exciting New Partnership with NC Solar Now since 2020

GreenPower Partnerships: Helping the Environment and Supporting STEM Education

At NC Solar Now, we are excited to announce that we will be NC GreenPower’s official installer for the Solar+ Schools program! Before we take a bow and collect our accolades, let’s discuss how much we love building relationships with the local community to share our love of all things solar through eco-friendly initiatives. 

Who is NC GreenPower?

Formed by Advanced Energy in 2003, NC GreenPower is a nonprofit organization. Their mission is to improve North Carolina’s environment by supporting renewable energy, carbon offset projects, and providing grants for solar installations at K-12 schools. Since 2003, NC GreenPower’s donors have

  • Supported more than 1,125 local renewable energy and carbon offset projects
  • Produced 1 billion kilowatt-hours of green energy
  • Mitigated nearly 78,000 tons of greenhouse gases

In 2015, NC GreenPower launched Solar+ Schools to support solar photovoltaic (PV) installations at K-12 schools. They have awarded installations to 42 schools, bringing energy education to more than 31,600 students. Through the NC GreenPower Solar+Schools initiative, the youth of America is learning how to be stewards of “green” living. 

What is the Solar + Schools Program?

The Solar+ Schools Program offers grants for the installation of 5-kilowatt PV systems at schools throughout North Carolina. Schools receive a system, STEM curriculum, and teacher training. The systems can be either top-of-pole mounted or roof mounted and includes an internet-based data monitoring system that allows students to:

  • View and analyze power generation
  • View and analyze weather data

The electricity that is produced by the system can be used by the school and/or delivered to the electric grid. 

Students learn the importance of solar while also being able to see the power generation in real-time. Hands-on learning that is meaningful, engaging, and relevant! A student and teacher’s dream!

Students across North Carolina will get to experience the benefits of Solar and STEM education. Providing a solar education for future generations is a gift that will not just benefit the students at those schools, but will benefit our planet for generations to come!
