Schools in BPA Service Territory - Renewable School and Renewable Classroom Project Support

ALREADY HAVE A PV SYSTEM? The Renewable Classroom project is for schools located in the BPA service territory that are interested in integrating renewable energy education into their school's STEM/CTE curriculum. A Renewable Classroom project includes a teacher training, science kit materials for the classroom ($3,500 value) and ongoing support and resources from the CE staff. If your school already has an installed PV system and you want to leverage the educational benefits of the system with data monitoring for classroom use, an additional applicant match would be required to cover the cost for a touch-screen kiosk to display live solar energy data at the school or facility.
