Brighter Future: A Study on Solar in U.S. K-12 Schools
The ten years leading up to 2030 will be the critical window during which we can still close the widening gap between our current global greenhouse gas emissions and where we need to be to keep the climate stable with a less than 1.5 degree Celsius rise in the average global temperature.
With nearly 50 million students attending over 130,000 K-12 schools, the education sector in the United States plays a significant role in addressing the climate crisis and in helping the country transition toward a key solution: a 100% clean energy future. Generation180 estimates that powering all U.S. K-12 schools with 100% solar would eliminate approximately 60 million metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions each year, the equivalent of closing down 16 coal fired power plants.
