Solar Energy Solutions for Schools

Powering green schools and graduates

Every school, K12 through college, should have access to clean, renewable energy. Even if your budget is maxed out or depleted. That’s why we’ve simplified it all with an integrated end-to-end solar and facility modernization solution for educational institutions. We’ve removed all the barriers that once impeded solar projects or halted your plans before they got off the ground. From concept to design, financing to installation, and ongoing support and maintenance, we’ve taken care of every step for you.

High energy costs are barriers to better academic resources for our kids

Ever wonder why most schools are financially strapped? Here are some alarming facts about energy costs in our school systems:

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, schools in America spend more than $6 billion on energy annually. Only teachers’ compensation is a larger expense. Shockingly, it’s not uncommon for school districts to pay more in energy costs than on textbooks! That’s why Panasonic is committed to correcting this injustice, and helping schools allocate more money back where it belongs: education.

A practical sustainable energy system for schools is long overdue

The DOE estimates that $1.5 billion can be saved annually through smarter energy management. But, the traditional solar model is fragmented, inefficient, and cost prohibitive for most school districts, requiring the involvement of a new third-party vendor at each phase of the process. This leads to a breakdown in communication and accountability. In turn, projects become delayed, disjointed, and over budget, resulting in cost increases, missed deadlines, and frustration.

Furthermore, schools today have multiple competing needs to address aging facilities, building operations, safety, security, modernization and providing better technology for teachers and students. At Panasonic, we understand the need for a self-sustaining program that directs solar energy savings back into the classroom environment through school-specific solutions that incorporate technology without any additional cost over the guaranteed life of the solar energy system.

Finally, a complete turn-key solar energy solution with zero upfront costs

At Panasonic Eco Solutions, we’re students of solar energy so you don’t have to be. In partnership with the alternative energy experts at Coronal Group, Panasonic brings the whole solar project under one secure umbrella with a streamlined end-to-end solution. We’ve implemented complete solar solutions for universities, municipalities, and leading corporations. We can do the same for you.

Panasonic is pleased to invite the first 100 schools, from K12 through post-secondary, the opportunity to take advantage of this innovative smart energy program on our path towards enabling thousands of schools to go solar by the end of the decade. Collaborating in a multi-phase private/public partnership, we’ll work together to apply your solar energy cost savings to curriculum development and classroom modernization - all while leaving your valued budget untouched.
