Solar is in the process of going mainstream, and key to that process is education and awareness. With this in mind, Microgrid Energy has created a Solar Traveling Education Program and Display for use in public presentations and school educational programs.
Most people have a real interest in renewable energy and and want to learn more, but the internet can only do so much. Being able to touch an actual module, and see how it works through interactive displays will help people connect in a more tangible way and learn see solar as something real, not so complicated, and within reach.
Microgrid debuted the display at the Chesterfield and Forest Park Earth Day Festivals. We are tweaking the display content and preparing presentation materials and then look to take it to other events and to schools – wherever there is interest.
