Episode 11 / Solar for Schools

About this Episode

Generation180 is a non-profit working to inspire and equip people to take action on clean energy. We’re joined by two of their team members – Wendy Philleo and Tish Tablan – to discuss the potential benefit of solar for schools across our region and America. “We estimate if all schools were 100% solar, we could reduce CO2 equal to closing 18 coal fired power plants.”
