This issue addresses the question frequently asked by administrators, "Is solar energy suitable for new or existing schools?" Various applications of solar energy that schools have installed or are about to install are described. These examples include a new school designed for solar energy, an existing school with solar energy added, a simple system of directly heating through glass rooflights, and a system for heating hot water for washrooms and a cafeteria. The basic techniques for harnessing the sun's energy are also described. (Author/MLF)
