Plaine Sud Energies’ project was to install solar panels on the roofs of schools. Being a collective project, it aimed to take into account all the stakeholders. Therefore, an educational project was developed in association with teaching staff at the schools in order to explain to the pupils how solar energy and the panels work. Energy is part of the school program. However, this topic is not always easy to cover. The project supplied a concrete example for teachers - for instance, the monitoring of the energy generated from the solar panels was a good reason to do mathematics exercises.
