Reading, wRiting, aRithmetic and Renewable energy!
Solar 4R Schools educates students about renewable energy by placing solar installations on school property, along with a data monitoring system and a curriculum package.
Energy generated by these small-scale solar-electric systems helps participating schools offset a portion of their electricity use.
Funded by Green Power Program participants and administered by the CE_Clean Energy Bright Futures program at the Bonneville Environmental Foundation, Solar 4R Schools is available to K-12 schools in Idaho Power’s service area.
Applications should include:
- Designation of a dedicated teacher or other school employee to champion the project
- Examples of how teachers will use the system and data in the classroom
- Description of how the project complements other school activities such as energy or environmental education
