The Brian D. Robertson Memorial Solar Schools Fund was created to introduce students to solar power by seeing 20,000 solar energy systems installed at K-12 schools across the nation by 2020. The “20/20 Vision of Solar in America”™ will put solar electricity within reach of millions of students across the country – a goal that embodies Brian’s belief that education is critical for developing a green energy economy and strengthening our nation’s future.
