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.
