The solar panels as an educational instrument
Solar for Schools helps schools decarbonise with solar energy. Directly or through partners, we fund, design, install and operate solar panels on school's roofs.
Furthermore, we use the solar panels installed on your roof as an educational instrument. Our online modules and experimental kits range from physics and engineering classes for high school students to energy and sustainability materials for kids and pupils in elementary and kindergarten.
What we offer
  • A photovoltaic system cost neutral for your school
  • The entire solar project lifecycle: funding, design, installation, operation and maintenance
  • Access to all solar data to be used in e.g. Display Energy Certificates and for educational purposes
  • Curriculum based teaching modules for all school ages
  • From hands-on physics and maths to energy related learning tools
  • A gamified app to engage with the pupils

We currently only offer PV systems for schools in UK, Ireland, Germany, Spain, Mexico, Colombia and India.

Design and analysis tools
Upon registration, we offer free access to comprehensive project design tools to analyse the viability of solar panels for your school. Costs, savings and energy production are automatically estimated based on your input. Besides the initial project assessment, our tools are ideal to be used as teaching materials, too.
Once the solar panels are installed, students and project managers can monitor the solar panels here on our website as well. Energy production, consumption, export, etc. are displayed on easy to use graphs.
