SolarCity says it is committed to educating youth about solar energy. That commitment seems to stand as the company plans to install its 100th solar learning station in California.
Leading solar service provider SolarCity today announced at the Green California Schools Summit that the company plans to connect 100 solar learning station installations through the Pacific Gas and Electric Company’s “Solar Schools Program,” greatly inspiring renewable energy awareness in educational centers across the state.
SolarCity developed Solar Learning Stations to provide community touch-points for experiencing solar electric generation and illustrate how energy is produced in a tangible and understandable way, further encouraging communities to explore clean, renewable energy alternatives.
SolarCity Solar Learning Stations consist of three elements: a power station, made of a visible solar photovoltaic installation and SolarGuard monitoring services, that provide customized, real-time information on each system performance and live comparisons with other towers. SolarGuard is particularly useful in the classroom setting, providing students with a platform for learning how solar power works and opportunities for integrating solar data into science curriculum.
