Georgia’s EMCs, together with Green Power EMC, developed its Energy Education Program in 2005 as a partner in education program providing an in-class solar learning laboratory for students across the state. The program provides participating schools with on-site solar panels and the software necessary to study energy produced by the sun.
Central Georgia EMC participates in the program with solar panel systems at
- Henderson Middle School, Jackson, GA
- Locust Grove Middle School, Locust Grove, GA
- Jasper County High School, Monticello, GA
The program features the latest in solar technology, with solar systems, and monitoring software. Students use the real-time data and learning laboratory to gain a better understanding of some of the challenges and opportunities of renewable energy.
