Quest Academy Solar Station:
Beginning in the 2009/10 school year, Quest Academy began operating its own solar station. The solar station, generously underwritten by the Illinois Clean Energy Foundation and Solar Star Foundation, primarily is designed as a teaching tool. Quest Academy students from an early age on are taught about alternative energy sources, including solar panel. By means of web-based technology, students are able to track the power being generated by the solar station. Students can compare and contrast power generation according to time of year and weather conditions. Additionally, students compare and contrast data with other solar stations throughout the world.

Visited Wanxiang Solar Panel Factory:
On May 19th, 2012, with Solar Star Foundation's sponsoring, a group of students from Northwest University visited Wanxiang solar panel factory located in Rockford, IL.

In order to help the students understand the principle of power generation by solar panels, Solar Star Foundation arranged wealth activities:

1. Invited Wanxiang America for an excellent speech about the prospects for solar energy industry.

2. Arranged a tour of the factory by Operation Manager Brent to watch the live panel production.

3. In the meanwhile, President Shirley Ni of Solar Star Foundation shared the story of Solar Star Foundation, and explained the importance of solar energy and how to apply solar panel to save energy.
