Way to Go!

Awards and Prizes

Win a Solar Tracker for Your School Plus Other Great Prizes!

Solar Tracker

This year, through the generous contribution of AllEarth Renewables, the randomly-selected qualified school (over 50% participation for at least one day) will win a Solar Tracker for their school. For many schools, that’s a significant upfront cost and ongoing energy savings! One lucky school will win an AllEarth Renewables Solar Tracker, including installation and permitting.

Power up your school with 5,000 watts and 7,500 kWh/yr. Because this tracker uses GPS technology to follow the sun throughout the day, it also provides up to 45% more energy than fixed systems!

Winner of the Way-to-Go 2016 AllEarth Solar Tracker – Shelburne Community School. The Tracker will be producing 9,300 free kWh/year, making students, teachers, and staff (not to mention taxpayers) very happy.

Carbon Cup

The overall winner of the Way to Go! School Challenge and the school with the highest participation rate will win Carbon Cups to display in their school lobbies for all to enjoy.
