Solar-powered science in Michigan

Part 3 of a series of 3 case studies on successful solar school campaigns. Be sure to check out part 1 and part 2 as well. The science department at a southeast Michigan high school is now fully powered by solar energy, thanks to the dedication of a teacher and his students. West Bloomfield High School first received a grant for a 3.4 kilowatt (kW) solar array in 2011. This small solar system generated enough energy to power the science classroom of Joshua Barclay, but his students in the E.A.R.T.H. (Environmentally Aware, Ready To Help) Club wanted to do more.  They wanted to leave a lasting legacy by providing the school with free energy for the future.

The basics of rooftop solar

When it comes to solar panels on homes, a lot of us might categorize ourselves as "curious but clueless". We know the basic idea—that solar can create electricity for your home and reduce your utility bill—but beyond that? The whole matter quickly starts feeling a bit mysterious, a bit like uncharted territory.

Thor's hammer and the fight against fossil fuels

As energy consumers, we’re on the front lines of an important battle. Until recently, we didn’t have much say in where we got the electricity we need to power our lives, or how much we paid for this privilege. Our energy choices were dictated to us from the outside, and we either had to be willing participants in the system or…live off the grid.

"Local Energy": why it's happening now

We hear a lot these days about “going local.” We might shop at the farmers market or choose to support mom-and-pop businesses in our community. Yet when it comes to energy, we usually just flip the switch or fill up the tank, without thinking much about it. Fortunately, there are rewarding ways we can go local with our energy, too.
