A bright future 
through solarSeven North Carolina schools recently heard that they would be receiving grants to install solar power systems. In reparation to a Clean Air Act violation, Duke Energy has set aside $300,000 for school solar projects, providing schools with equipment, training and curriculum for students and teachers.This will give these young minds the opportunity to see renewable energy firsthand, understand how it works, and realize how important this kind of technology is to our state.In order to give the next generation the chance to flourish, we need to give them the tools and knowledge to achieve success. By seeing this technology every day, students will be able to expand their grasp of energy and begin their lives with the knowledge that solar energy is attainable, sustainable, and inexhaustible.Legislators need to know that we want to push our state forward to more renewable energy. By implementing this energy system and mindset now, we will ensure that our children will have a sustainable source of power decades from now.It’s time to look to the future. And that future would look a little brighter with solar energy.Cinnamon MooreChapel Hill
