Ohio Solar Resources

General resources regarding state solar policies, solar incentives, and utilities.

  • Ohio Solar Schools Program: The Ohio Solar Schools Initiative teaches the value of solar energy and energy efficiency to k-12 students and college students throughout Ohio. Solar panels are installed on educational centers and schools so that they are visible to passersby and to the students from school grounds. Combining high visibility with teacher training and data collection, the schools and education centers are turned into teaching laboratories. The Ohio Solar Schools Initiative was one of the first of its kind in the United States and it began with American Electric Power’s (AEP) Learning from Light Initiative at the Bluffsview Elementary School in Worthington Ohio in 1998. The entire list of Ohio Solar Schools is found on this Web site. READ MORE →
  • Shared Power Network: This nonprofit organization strives to bring the benefit of solar energy to every classroom in the state of Ohio. Local solar installations provide benefits for school-age students, educators, utility-paying schools, and nonprofit organizations. SPN aims to bring those benefits to all by helping schools find funding, manage solar projects, and ensure that teachers incorporate solar education into the classroom.  READ MORE →
  • Rebates and Incentives: Energy Sage shows how Ohio has a few incentives to help you go solar: one that pays you for the electricity your panels generate, one that rewards you for that electricity’s clean characteristics, and one to help you finance your new solar energy system. READ MORE →
