NREL to "Teach the Teachers" of Jeffco's Solar on Schools program

April 22, 2011

The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), will introduce curriculum in partnership with Jeffco’s Solar on Schools program, which plans to install 100kw PV systems on 30 district schools. Once the curriculum is developed and tested, Jeffco hopes that other schools will also adopt alternative renewable energy curriculum.

Next fall,  NREL and Jeffco are anticipating to launch "Teach the Teachers", a classroom education piece that teaches students and teachers about solar power and other energy-saving measures.  Students will learn how to live a more sustainable lifestyle and develop an understanding of the science and technology behind their green choices.
