About the Project:

As part of its Clean Energy and Carbon Reduction Initiative, in 2014 Chevrolet committed to provide Solar 4R Schools renewable energy education resources to teachers in select communities served by local Chevrolet dealerships with installed solar-powered electric vehicle (EV) canopy charging stations.

Putnam Chevrolet of Burlingame CA, has a 10.7 kW solar EV charging station on-site (see live performance data here) and through Chevrolet’s support, has provided Solar 4R Schools STEM education training and classroom resources to multiple educators representing the following schools: Bayside STEM Academy, Black Diamond Middle School, Bowman International School, Burlingame School District, Cunha Intermediate School, Evergreen School District, IBL Middle School, Lagunitas School District, Modesto City Schools, Oakland High School, Pacifica School District, Redwood High School, The Athenian School, Walden West and Woodside High School. The workshop was hosted by the San Mateo County Office of Education.

The Rahus Institute (Solar Schoolhouse) and We Share Solar also provided local teachers with additional resources. Empower Energies participated through providing energy performance data from the Chevrolet dealership solar EV station.
