New Jersey School Amongst Top Solar Schools In Nation

by Ed Tsunoda

Both the latest industry review of solar energy being used by schools, and the most recent federal listing of top solar schools have identified the Lawrenceville School in New Jersey as not only a top solar energy producing school, but as the driving force behind New Jersey being the 2nd highest rated state in the country for solar powered schools.

In a study released last month, funded in part by the U.S. Department of Energy, the foundation cited the Lawrence-based school for helping to lead New Jersey to the No. 2 spot overall in solar energy produced for K-12 schools.

The organization used data and analysis support from the Solar Energy Industries Association, the national trade association of the U.S. solar energy industry.

In this first-ever report, titled “Brighter Future: A Study on Solar in U.S. Schools,” researchers found that 3,752 schools across the country have solar installations – five times more than in 2008. That means nearly 2.7 million students are attending schools with solar energy systems.
