Secure Futures has just announced grant opportunities for Historically Black Colleges and Universities to install solar energy systems on campus.
The funding is provided as part of the company’s Energy Equity Outreach Program. With a minimum size solar project, HBCUs can quality for grants for schools to apply to faculty salaries or other pressing needs, along with scholarships and internships for students to get involved with the fast-growing solar power and clean energy industry.
Historically Black Colleges and Universities play a key role in America’s educational system. For more than a century, these 107 schools located across the South and beyond have served the African American community. Now, HBCUs have the opportunity to connect their students to the 21st century economy of clean energy.
It’s all about Energy Equity, that is, making sure that the benefits of clean energy are available to all Americans regardless of race, income or background.
On Thursday, April 22 at 2:00 p.m. Eastern, Secure Futures’s Jeff Gowdy, a graduate of HBCU Fayetteville State University in North Carolina, will host a webinar on how HBCUs in the Mid-Atlantic and Southeast can get solar energy systems on their campuses with no upfront capital cost.
Solar projects also include educational offerings including opportunities for students to participate in hands-on citizen science about the technology and business of renewable energy and its application to climate justice and social equity.
The webinar is free but you do need to register in advance. Reserve your space today!
