Good Sun is helping Bitney Charter School get closer to their goal of zero net energy with the installation of a 12kW rooftop solar PV system. We are working with local solar professionals and community members to provide the labor, design, and engineering for the project. The previous donation of used PV modules from Good Sun is currently being put to use in a demonstration solar PV lab, providing hands-on opportunities for students to learn about renewable energy and principles of sustainability in a classroom setting.

Special thanks to:
