Brighter Schools Solar RECs

Match your electricity use with renewable energy produced by photovoltaic solar panels installed at U.S. schools

Schools Benefit From Solar Power Systems

Increasingly, schools are discovering that the installation of photovoltaic(PV) solar panels can provide them with significant financial and educational benefits.

Support the installation of solar power systems at schools with 3Degrees’ Brighter Schools Solar RECs

PV panel self-ownership or power purchase agreements allow them to lower their electricity bills and lock in low electricity prices. In addition, the PV panels themselves provide students with an on-site living solar energy laboratory for science, math, and other lessons. They also serve as high-profile, visible symbols to communities of solar power’s potential to meet the nation’s growing energy needs.

Demonstrate Your Support For More School Solar Power

3Degrees’ Brighter Schools Solar Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) enable organizations to mitigate their environmental impact by matching their electricity usage with renewable energy generated by photovoltaic panels installed at schools.

Brighter Schools Solar RECs are generated from photovoltaic solar projects located at schools across the United States. In choosing to pay a premium for Brighter Schools Solar RECs, your organization signals rising demand for more school solar power. This helps improve the economics of school solar power projects, encouraging the installation of new solar power systems at U.S. K-12 schools.

3Degrees’ Brighter Schools Solar RECs:

  • Are third-party verified and audited by Green-e® Energy to meet their rigorous environmental and consumer protection standards
  • Represent the environmental benefits of renewable energy generated by projects that have gone online on or after January 1, 1999
  • Are delivered with an attestation that names the specific school PV solar systems from which the RECs were sourced
