Case Study: NYC Solar Education Program

In 2016 the City of New York was poised to install large scale solar panel systems on more than 100 public school buildings in just a few years.  The agencies engaged in these projects seized the opportunity to link these investments to student learning and improve climate education literacy by creating the NYC Solar Schools Program. This case study highlights the components of these programs and distills the lessons learned into a set of best practices to build a culture of learning and climate literacy around clean energy and climate change mitigation.
