Right now, you can go solar. Whether you live in an apartment or have a shady roof, whether you have lots of money or not, you can help put more solar panels in our community, reducing reliance on coal-produced electricity and reasons to build new fossil fueled generation facilities.
Solar on La Crosse Schools (SOLS) helps raise funds to move our local school district to renewable energy. Not only does this lower carbon emissions, it also reduces the district's energy costs and provides hands-on renewable energy learning opportunities for district students. In addition to helping fund solar installations, SOLS also donates solar learning materials and helps teachers find suitable lesson plans.
Donations to SOLS are held in a designated fund that is securely managed by the La Crosse Public Education Foundation. SOLS is 100% volunteer-powered and all funds are used exclusively to cover the costs of solar energy projects on La Crosse public schools.
