Testimonials

Thanks for the pertinent information about solar ed in schools. I forwarded your info to my contacts in both Steilacoom High School and Washington High School. I think you are into the right market at the right time. We need to get our educators thinking more about science and technology. We will get smarter on this topic and figure out if our schools are willing to go forward. The Kiwanis in Steilacoom and the Clover Creek Council have proposed providing a grant to Steilacoom HS to evaluate the feasibility of adding solar studies to their curriculum and building a solar park by the school. Your information has been extremely helpful.

Thanks for taking the time to share some of your knowledge.
