The Power to do Good Work
The essence of Secure Solar Futures lies in our understanding of what solar energy really is: the power to do good work. We enable educational institutions to create more efficient and affordable energy production to power the next generation. We are a partner in innovation that replaces traditional energy investment loss with a new model of leadership: reducing energy costs, and freeing up capital to hire teachers and faculty while investing in classrooms, labs and facilities for our shared future.
After colleges and schools go solar with us on campus, we help them make the most of their clean energy with materials, training and other resources to make it easy to turn solar power into an exciting educational opportunity for their students. And all at no extra cost.
Colleges & UniversitiesHigher education is looked upon for leadership and innovation. Secure Solar Futures enables this mission to be realized in the energy sector. Supervised solar panel installations, senior theses and capstone projects, internships and academic research are outcomes of this shared partnership.
K-12 SchoolsK-12 education is the platform for a generation. Schools can access our unique Throwing Solar Shade® hands-on STEM curriculum developed with leading climate scientist Dr. Jeremy Hoffman. Secure Solar Futures also provides curricula for both public and independent schools.
