Charter School Energy

Investing in Education Starts Here.

Charter School Energy Powered by BioStar Renewables is a full-service energy upgrade program with flexible financing options. This program allows charter schools to access energy efficiency and renewable energy solutions for their buildings—­­improving the learning environment while reducing utility and maintenance expenses.

Charter School Energy enables school leaders to greatly reduce energy costs and enhance student learning environments through improved lighting, HVAC and thermostat upgrades and building controls. Renewable solutions such as solar allow the school to offset some or all of the building’s remaining energy consumption.


    • Energy upgrade and renewable energy solutions provided by Charter School Energy will ensure that the charter school’s overall investment is less than what they would spend to use and maintain existing systems.
    • Smart Lighting– Provides the ability to control lighting and impart a different atmosphere in any room, at any time, from anywhere with an Internet connection, thereby enhancing both the classroom experience and the security of the building.
    • Solar Window Film – Solar window film deflects up to 80% of solar heat in the summer, and retains the building’s heat in the winter, improving comfort and reducing utility costs.
    • Heating / Cooling and Controls – Smart thermostats, building controls, HVAC upgrades, and occupancy sensors ensure maximum comfort, while increasing efficiency.
    • Reduced need for energy consumption will relieve the power grid and reduce the carbon footprint of the school.
    • Schools will be able to illustrate best practices in energy efficiency and renewable energy on campus, serving as educational case studies for their staff and students.
