ABOUT THE SPONSOR ILLINOIS CLEAN ENERGY COMMUNITY FOUNDATION

The Illinois Clean Energy Community Foundation launched its K-12 Solar Schools Program in 2006, and its K-12 Wind Schools Pilot in 2011 to introduce the future of energy technology to today’s students. To date, the Foundation’s programs have awarded grants to over 400 schools across Illinois to support the installation of small-scale solar PV and wind systems. Although small, each system will become part of the school’s curriculum as well as generate free electricity. More information and monitoring can be found at www.IllinoisSolarSchools.org.
