On Track to Become the First 100% Solar School in Georgia 

Becoming a green school is right in line with The  SAE School core philosophies. Students at the school are taught to be aware of their environment – this includes the physical environment, nature, and even with people around them. Students can monitor the school’s sustainability efforts in real-time via a digital monitor in the school’s lobby. Whether students are learning to give back to the community, learning about sustainable farming techniques such as aquaponics or leading by example by working to becoming  a school completely off the power grid – they are all learning that we can all reduce our negative impact on the world.

The SAE School’s mission to become a 100% solar powered school will give our students a shining example of reducing our impact on the world.

Current Progress

Last year, The SAE School installed a 30-kilowatt rooftop array of solar panels as well as a schoolwide LED light conversion in its single building. That installation resulted in  a 30% decrease in utility costs, from about $3,000 per month to about $2,400.

The next phase will be partly funded by a $60,000 Kendeda Fund grant through the Southface Institute, an Atlanta-based sustainability nonprofit. 

Next Steps:
