Solar for Schools

Going Solar For Schools with NCI Solar

Schools across the country are facing significant pressure to save on expenses. One proven way to cut costs is by investing in solar-generated power.

Solar energy reduces electric operating costs by up to 30%, and these savings are often maximized by the large, flat rooftops at schools that provide access to direct sunlight.

Better yet, going solar at your school demonstrates financial and environmental responsibility to students, parents, and your community.
