The three Conergy installations produce a total of around 705 megawatt-hours of clean solar energy per year; avoiding the emission of more than 500,000 lbs of harmful CO2 greenhouse gases
Sacramento, CA (PRWEB) April 25, 2011
With the new Conergy solar energy system, students of all ages at the Muroc Unified School District will now experience clean solar energy and learn about sustainable energy generation. The three installations, with a total power output of nearly 400 kilowatts, are on the grounds of the schools’ district office, the West Boron Elementary school and the Boron Senior High school. The solar energy systems will provide 80% of the school district’s energy consumption, reducing its utility bill by 95%. These benefits are made possible by Conergy’s clean solar power systems, comprising nearly 1,700 Conergy modules. Total expected savings to the district over the system’s 30 years expected lifespan is approximately $3 million— with no out of pocket or up front expenses to the district. Solar energy finance company, Enfinity, delivered funding for the project through a Power Purchase Agreement.
"We are glad to have the opportunity to install solar power on Muroc’s school grounds", says Conergy’s David Vincent, Project Development Manager. "Being exposed to solar energy, the students get a feel for the effectiveness and accessibility of sustainable energy while increasing their environmental awareness. In sunny California in general, and Muroc in particular, the clean energy future is becoming a reality."
Pupils and school staff are proud of their solar plant. "The three Conergy installations produce a total of around 705 megawatt-hours of clean solar energy per year; avoiding the emission of more than 500,000 lbs of harmful CO2 greenhouse gases", explains Byron Johnson, Muroc Unified School District Assistant-Superintendent. "This is as much electricity as one hundred Californian households consume annually. By creating our own energy, students and staff become more aware of their energy use and are inspired to use energy wisely. This helps us to encourage ‘green learning’, by producing clean energy and using less energy whenever possible."
