Electric buses, green job programs: How NYC’s sustainability plan affects schools
New York City public schools will draw more energy from solar panels and provide students with broader climate education and green job training programs.
Mayor Eric Adams touted these developments on Thursday when unveiling his new sustainability plan, outlining dozens of initiatives aimed at alleviating the harmful impacts of climate change and pollution.
By next month, the city expects to have more than 70 solar panel installations on school rooftops, with solar power providing more than 60% of the city’s public schools’ total annual electricity needs, officials said of the initiative that’s been underway for years.
And under the city’s new plan, more New York City students will have opportunities to train for green energy careers.
