Constellation advised that it will be developing a 4.35MW solar power project for Arizona’s Casa Grande Union High School District. The project will consist of solar power systems on four sites including Vista Grande High School, Casa Grande High School, Casa Verde High School and the school district’s transportation centre. The solar panels are expected to produce nearly 75% of the district’s electricity needs.
Constellation will finance, own and operate the PV systems, which are scheduled for completion by December, while the school district purchases the electricity at a fixed rate from Constellation under a 20-year PPA. The solar project was initially developed by Kennedy Partners and REgeneration Finance. CORE Construction will build the systems.
“The new solar power systems will help the district to maintain stable electricity costs and serve as an educational resource for our students to learn about renewable energy,” said Shannon Goodsell, superintendent of Casa Grande Union High School District.
Around 18,232 PV panels will help generate electricity for the project and be located on 43 carport structures. Per year, the project is anticipated to generate almost 7 million kWh of electricity.
