Solar In New Hampshire Schools Program Expands

New Hampshire Solar on Schools program Expands

New Hampshire high schools that utilize the sun's energy to generate a portion of their electricity will more than double to ten as a result of grants announced in June by the New Hampshire Solar on Schools Program. The program, now in its second year, is a joint partnership of the Governor's Office of Energy and Community Service (ECS), Public Service of New Hampshire (PSNH), and Solar Works, Inc., of Wilton, NH, in cooperation with the New Hampshire Department of Education.

Each school will receive a roof-mounted 1-kilowatt photovoltaic (PV) system, a system monitor that can be connected to the school's computer for classroom projects, and educational materials on solar and other renewable energy resources. In their grant proposals the schools described how they will integrate the PV system and accompanying materials into their educational program. The schools will also develop activities to increase awareness in their communities about environmental issues and renewable energy.

"We're excited about the response to this year's program," said Robin Read of ECS. "It demonstrates the commitment of New Hampshire schools to exposing students to expanding career opportunities in renewable energy technologies and to teach them about the importance of renewable energy resources to our environment. We received several more excellent applications than we are currently able to fund. We hope to be able to fund them in the fall." ECS Director Deborah Schachter said, "This is a great way to raise the enthusiasm among the next generation of energy decision makers for clean, renewable energy choices."

Each solar electric system will lower greenhouse gas emissions by more than 1,500 pounds annually.

ECS is a partner in the Millions Solar Roofs Initiative (MSRI). New Hampshire's Solar on Schools PV systems will count toward the MSRI goal of one million solar systems in the United States by 2010.

This solar power design is great! It uses solar panels and solar power in its plan.

In 1980, Mike and Lisa Kraft set out to build a really cool solar home. They used many solar concepts, including solar panels, solar power, and solar water heating, in their plan. They still live in the same home today, and offer you a great way to learn everything that they have learned--Only you won't have to study for hundreds of hours, and live in the house for 20+ years, like they did.
