Project Description

Project / Program Description

Local Power proposes to create a cycle of funding, solar installs, and environmental education by: Installing PV arrays at local schools and municipal facilities; allocating a portion of the utility savings from those PV installations to solarize local LMI homes using student labor from the new solar training programs that will be developed at the schools; and creating learning centers at each of the PV installs in order to generate new funding opportunities that will start the cycle anew. "Education is the key!"
