On the roof at UAGC's Brandeis Campus, Solar One inspected the solar panels installed in cooperation with the school during the 2011-2012 school year. Students have access to an energy monitor that shows the impact of the solar panels on the building's energy performance. It is one more facet of the experience students can gain on a path to a green career!
"Solar One is working with the NYC DOE Sustainability Initiative on a new program called the NYC Solar Schools Education Program. The program is available to schools in buildings that either currently have a rooftop solar photovoltaic array, or are scheduled to have one installed. DOE is working with the Department of Citywide Administrative Services (DCAS) and the New York Power Authority (NYPA) on a mayoral initiative to install a combined 100 MW of solar photovoltaic capacity on city-owned buildings, as per goals outlined in OneNYC, New York City’s plan for sustainability and resiliency."
