New Smyrna Beach Utilities to Install PV on Schools

August 1999 - The New Smyrna Beach Utilities Commission recently launched a green pricing contribution program to fund local renewable energy projects. The municipal utility's 20,000 customers can now donate $5 or $10 per month to support the installation of solar electric systems on area schools. A 4-kW photovoltaics (PV) system (to be paid for with future contributions) was installed on a local elementary school. The city has set a goal of installing 150 kW of PV over the next 4 years through the green pricing program and other solar energy programs. The utility has also initiated a buy-down program that enables customers to purchase rooftop PV systems for $2/watt. The Legal Environmental Assistance Foundation (LEAF), which is working with Florida's utilities to increase energy efficiency and the use of solar energy, has labeled New Smyrna Beach "Florida's Premier Solar City."

News Release - "Florida's Premier Solar City" installs first of many solar energy systems
