It is important that solar installation be immediate and visually accessible within communities.  Installations on important community buildings and neighborhood centers such as schools and churches are critically important as demonstrators of environmentally benign, renewable, and decentralized power.

Our schools can become energy generating facilities supplying power directly to themselves while at the same time informing, educating and creating awareness among students, their teachers and parents.  These school projects can be financed either by third parties such as a community group or through public funding when it is available.

To see some examples, check out our Community Projects section.
