Why Solar?


You are overspending on energy.

Energy is the second-largest cost to schools after salaries and benefits. Our solution can save you money beginning in the first year so you can invest in quality teachers, technology, safety, and other services that benefit your school. With our all-inclusive, fixed monthly Solar-as-a-Service fee, your budget is now predictable and there are no additional costs or hidden expenses.


Solar is the best source of alternative energy.

“Numerous key markets recently reached an inflection point where renewables have become the cheapest form of new power generation. [This is] a dynamic we see spreading to nearly every country we cover by 2020. The price of solar panels has fallen 50% in less than two years (2016-17)."

Schools are going solar.

Nearly 5,500 K-12 schools* across the nation are already using solar and educating their students on clean energy and improving their community. The dramatic decline in the cost of solar panels and installation have contributed to solar adoption, but there are still many obstacles that make it difficult for schools to take advantage of solar energy. Sun FundED removes these obstacles so you can experience all the benefits of this renewable energy source.
