About SolarforSchools

Our goal is to fight global warming and educate our future generation on sustainability. We do this by helping schools to produce renewable energy. School roofs are big, schools have a high energy consumption and it’s unlikely for schools to run out of business, that’s why we believe they’re perfect real estate for solar panels.

At solar for schools, we help schools go solar by managing and de-risking the entire process of funding, installing, managing and maintaining solar panels, so schools have complete peace of mind now and in the future.

We provide data and tools for the curriculum to support teachers engaging children with real life applications of nature sciences.

Why us

We believe in a small and effective development team. We are geographically distributed in Munich, London and Suffolk. We’d like to have impact on a greater cause and look for like-minded people who love what we do and which love technology.

We treat people fair and with candor and allow flexible working hours because we have families.
