The week leading up to Earth Day, college students and community members around the country will host solar education events in their community to spark a national conversation about solar energy, energy access, and a just transition to a clean energy economy.
Solar Education Week is a partnership effort by organizations including GRID Alternatives, Sierra Student Coalition and RE-volv to engage individuals across the country to organize and participate in Solar Education events!
Solar Education Week events can take many forms, and RE-volv staff is available to help craft your event.
You can play a critical role in spreading the word about solar and how it benefits communities across the nation. The message is simple: solar is affordable, sustainable and provides communities at all economic levels with clean energy and energy independence.
By coordinating a national solar education effort, we can engage our local and nationwide networks and the press in order to spread the word about solar and promote its increased adoption.
Solar is a unique solution to climate change because it’s something that anyone can get involved with. Solar Education Week allows everyone to participate in reducing carbon emissions and creating a 100% renewable powered future for all.
