Sparking student leadership through energy lessons and resources.
It has been a longstanding goal of Sonoma Clean Power to develop and deliver a grant in partnership with the Santa Rosa Junior College Business Department and the SRJC Foundation. As partners, SCP and SRJC are invested in establishing a strong culture of sustainability that promotes environmental stewardship, economic vitality and social equity throughout the region.
Together, we can be on the forefront of developing sustainable small businesses and creating a vibrant hub of entrepreneurship growth in our community. SCP established an endowment fund with the SRJC Foundation to provide a reliable source of funding for years to come.

Throughout the school year, SCP partners with Sonoma Water to teach elementary students about electricity, power sources, and climate change. In 2018, we visited 49 schools across Sonoma and Mendocino counties. Students in 3rd and 4th grades participated in lessons and engaged in hands-on learning activities with coal, magnets and solar panels.
Since 2013, Sonoma Clean Power, Career Technical Education Foundation, Sonoma County Office of Education, and Switch Electric Vehicles engage schools to work together to implement an Electric Vehicle design and manufacturing program in classes to develop awareness, knowledge, and skills among our youth around clean energy.
Switch Electric Vehicles developed a comprehensive program that teaches students (middle school, high school, and college) the fundamentals of electric vehicle design, assembly, manufacturing, and maintenance. SCP funded several kits at select local schools that allow students to assemble a street-legal electric vehicle.
