Five Coastal Carolina University students known as the CCU Solar Ambassadors presented their research on renewable energy projects at the recent South Carolina Clean Energy Business Alliance (SCCEBA) conference, held Sept. 21 in Columbia, S.C. The Solar Ambassadors at CCU have teamed up with Re-Volv, a solar energy nonprofit based in San Francisco, in a project to bring solar power to a nonprofit organization in the Myrtle Beach area that CCU serves. CCU is one of seven universities selected to participate in the nationally recognized Solar Ambassador program, which is co-sponsored by the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation. The ambassadors are working with the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) group in Little River, S.C., to fund solar panels for its post headquarters, with the aim of lowering energy costs and decreasing its carbon footprint. "Working with Re-Volv, our Solar Ambassadors group is helping to fill the funding void for renewable energy for nonprofits, which can't take advantage of state and federal tax credits that significantly lower the cost of solar energy installation," said Kilgore. "Our team has a unique opportunity to benefit the Grand Strand community and contribute to cleaner energy forms in our country." The group hopes to complete its project in the spring of 2018.
