With tight budgets for schools everywhere, it might seem that solar is too much of an extravagance for schools. Think again, it’s a perfect match. Alan H. Lee, founder and CEO, Ecosolargy said it’s smarter, cheaper and easier now for schools to go solar than ever before. He said that first of all, the cost has come down about 300% from five years ago. And new financing and leasing structures are available that are very attractive to schools. Not to mention the fact that most schools have large areas of roof space that can be used for energy generation, plus when schools are closed during vacations, holidays and weekends, the energy generation goes into the grid, making a net gain for the school.
