Let’s power Cheatham County Schools with solar energy!
Cheatham County School District can be a Solar Champion by installing solar panels to supplement our energy usage. Solar power in schools will not only save money, but also provide a solar training program for our students, and add resilience to maintain our operations.
With a tax-free commitment to solar energy, Cheatham County can:
- BUDGET SAVINGS – By using COVID relief funds to invest in energy efficiency, schools can turn a one-time investment of federal funds into a stream of ongoing budget savings. Schools can achieve significant reductions in energy usage, generating budget savings that can be used to fund more district services, instructional resources, and learning.
- ENHANCE LEARNING – On-campus solar energy projects serve as laboratories for students to gain real world experience in applied science, technology, and engineering. An additional CTE (Career Technical Education) program will be included.
- BUILD COMMUNITY RESILIENCE – Solar, plus the battery storage, can provide power and light to help develop a school resilience plan to improve preparedness, maintain operations, provide continuity of services to the community at large during long-term closures, including how to provide meals.
