Salt River Project to Offer Community Solar to Public Schools

September 2010 - Salt River Project (SRP) launched SRP Community Solar, a program that allows public schools to purchase energy from a photovoltaic facility to be built in 2011. Schools districts can purchase the output for a fixed price of 9.9 cents per kilowatt-hour for 10 years. Of the 35 school districts in SRP territory, 26 have expressed interest in participating. SRP will retain the renewable energy certificates from the solar facility in order to meet a requirement by their board of directors to provide 15 percent of generation from sustainable resources by 2025.

The solar facility will be 20 megawatts (MW), of which 18 MW will be reserved for school districts. SRP is also developing a waiting list for residential customers who may be interested in participating in a similar program; 2 MW will be dedicated to the residential program.
