Your invitation to do something amazing…

Solar Schools is a totally unique way to crowdfund clean energy for your school (and their future).

  • Get kids switched on to energy + climate
  • Strengthen the school and community
  • Cut carbon and boost budgets

Our special mix of cutting-edge technology and good old-fashioned community spirit has already helped schools raise over £470,000 for solar panels.

How it works

  1. Get a small team of volunteers together.
  2. Use our crowdfunding tools and training for a flying start.
  3. Dream up fun ideas and events to get everyone involved.
  4. Hit your target, plug in those panels and celebrate!

This year, we’re offering two routes to solar superstardom.

Free • Charity run • Not for profit
Solar Schools is run by the climate change charity 10:10, and it’s free for schools to take part. We’re doing this because we love renewable energy, and want to help more people benefit from it. For more info, visit 1010uk.org.
