Sun Power for Schools

Georgia’s EMCs, together with Green Power EMC, developed SunPower for Schools 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. SunPower for Schools is the largest solar education program in Georgia.

The SunPower for Schools 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.
