Solar One is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization whose mission is to design and deliver innovative education, training, and technical assistance that fosters sustainability and resiliency in diverse urban environments. We empower learning that changes the way people think about energy, sustainability, and resilience by engaging and educating a diverse set of stakeholders and beneficiaries. Our programs help individuals and communities explore new ways of living and working that are more adaptive to a changing world. About Solar One and the Solar Schools Education Program The NYC DOE is working with DCAS on a mayoral initiative to install 100 MW of solar on City-owned buildings by 2025. Solar One’s K-12 curriculum, GDL, is a STEM-focused, interdisciplinary sustainability curriculum that provides students with hands-on experiential learning. The NYC Solar Schools Education Program includes a combination of hands-on activities that give context for why solar is important – such as an introduction to power plants, fossil fuels, and climate change – and explore the science and applications of solar energy through building mini-solar systems, field studies, and experiments. A key goal of the NYC Solar Schools Education Program is to connect the solar installations on school buildings to curriculum, allowing teachers to use solar as a tool for students to learn about renewable energy and sustainability, and as a catalyst for STEM learning.
