Solar Photovoltaic (PV) projects provide schools with important learning opportunities as well as significant savings and long-term energy cost predictability. Students, teachers, parents, and community members get a firsthand opportunity to learn about clean technology through streaming data from their array.
PV arrays can be installed on school roofs, unused campus grounds, and offsite in many cases, allowing VT, NH and ME school administrators a range of options for adopting renewable energy. The revolution in affordable solar energy gives your school:
Protection from Electricity Market Volatility
New Revenue Streams and Improved Cash Flows
Educational Benefits for Your Students
Live streaming data for STEM programs
Why Partner With Us?
The team at Norwich Solar Technologies includes science and engineering educators from university and secondary school settings. We provide a range of educational assistance and displays to our academic clients, both interactive and online, integrating data and information from your solar array as part of classroom analysis and education.
We have developed structured finance solutions to reduce and stabilize a school’s energy costs without capital investment, while simultaneously adding an invaluable educational opportunity to their curriculum.
Part of what excites us in working with schools are the broad educational aspects enabled by the projects. For example, we have built and provided hands-on interactive displays, taught classes, provided support to teachers with curricula materials, and given student assembly talks.
Additionally, data from solar PV arrays can be readily integrated into the educational curriculum, and are easily coordinated with STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) initiatives. Norwich Solar Technologies also provides, free of charge, a video display system for tracking your PV array’s energy production while measuring your savings and environmental impact.
“I found the NST folks to be unfailingly polite and able to anticipate concerns expressed by the school community about siting and appearance. The construction process went very smoothly, especially given that Norwich upgraded the school’s electrical entrance and transformer as part of the solar array project. I heartily recommend using NT for any size project you may be considering.“
Bill KnightFacilities Manager, Plainfield, NH School
“Norwich Technologies provided and installed an 83 kW (DC) ground-mounted solar array for The Mountain School during the summer of 2015. I would recommend Norwich Technologies no matter what the size of your project might be.“
