At Chariot, we realize it’s important to promote not just solar energy, but also green living, sustainability and clean energy overall. That’s why we’ve formulated a scholarship to help those who strive to live a greener, cleaner life. One educational scholarship in the amount of $2,000 will be awarded each semester to an individual who actively implements green living and/or carbon footprint-reducing practices into their everyday life.
