Solar to Save School District $12m

A 1.26 megawatt solar photovoltaic system at two campuses is expected to save the Mountain View Los Altos High School District more than $12 million through reduced energy costs and rebates over 25 years. The Cupertino Electric PV systems – a 755 kilowatt array at Mountain View High School and a 515 kilowatt installation at Los Altos High School – will cover parking lot canopies and are expected to meet almost half the district’s electricity needs, producing 39.3 million kilowatt-hours of electricity. According to the district, the solar installations were funded by a local bond measure.
