Solar 4R Schools

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 the Green Power Program participants and administered by the Bonneville Environmental Foundation, Solar 4R Schools is available to K-12 schools in Idaho Power’s service area.
