Project Description

The Redwood City School District’s goals were to reduce operating costs and implement sustainable operating practices. The District developed an energy development strategy with Sage Renewables energy consultants and obtained Proposition 39 funding through the state of California to help fund the project.

The District identified three school sites, and their district officers, to host solar PV installations. Through a competitive RFP process, the District selected REC Solar, a Duke Energy Renewables company, as their energy solutions provider. REC Solar’s unique capabilities and robust experience with PV for K-12 schools made them an ideal provider. The implemented solution includes a variety of mounting methods including carports, playground shade structures, fixed tilt ground mount on a hill slope, and roof mount racking.
