2021 NC GreenPower Solar+ Schools
Submissions due by 5pm on Sunday, February 28, 2021
?NC GreenPower has announced year seven of our Solar+ Schools grant program! The application is open now and will be available through February 28, 2021. Any North Carolina K-12 school may apply for a grant for the installation of a 5 kW educational solar array. In addition, awardees receive nearly $14,000 in related benefits, including donated SunPower solar modules. School fundraising goals will be fixed at $6,000, $9,000 or $12,000, depending on economic factors, and NC GreenPower donations provide the remaining funds needed. In addition, $2,500 is refunded following the final inspection of the project for schools to keep in a reserved fund for any unexpected operations and maintenance costs.
Each school will also receive a full curriculum package with STEM lessons, a hands-on activity kit and a 6-hour certified teacher training from NEED.org for up to 5 teachers. Systems are equipped with a weather station and data monitoring sensors that provide additional information, like this one at West Wilkes High. Learn more in this Mt. Pleasant High School feature story.
