What are the extened benefits for schools when installing solar panels?
Lets look at this example from the US:
Solar power meant serious savings for this Arkansas school district, and that money is going straight into teachers’ pockets!
After 1,400 solar panels were installed on school campuses, the district was able to save $1 MILLION on electricity bills.
The solar savings have been allocated to the staff and every teacher was given a pay raise between $2,000 and $3,000! US schools spend $8 BILLION on energy every year.
If every public school ran on solar, it would save the same amount of CO2 emissions as closing 18 coal power plants. Paying teachers what they’re worth and saving the planet at the same time is a win-win!
