EMS Has Gone Solar

EMS is solar!  Our solar panels were installed at the end of the 17-18 school year and were up and running over summer.

We have a 365 KW rooftop system with 1000 panels (or modules ).

Some of the advantages of this system are:

Solar generation of 525,000 kWh/year

These panels meet 72% of our school’s electricity needs and have an average savings of $52,000 per year!

Solar Project Goals:
●Achieve clean energy for schools and reduce the district’s carbon footprint
●Mitigate current and future electricity prices and minimize utility expenditures
●Provide renewable energy educational opportunities
 
Also, The district leases these solar arrays from a third party over 20 years, with buyout options starting at year 7.
