Conectiv Energy to Bring Solar to Philly Schools

January 2000 - Conectiv Energy announced that it is offering Philadelphia-area schools the opportunity to receive 100% renewable power at no additional cost. In partnership with the Clean Air Council, Conectiv will install and maintain photovoltaic (PV) systems on up to 25 area schools with the schools receiving the remainder of their electricity from Conectiv's Nature's Power product, which is supplied from small hydro and biomass resources. Under current market conditions, each school would pay no more for the solar system and green power purchases than it would for service from their default electricity supplier. Conectiv also plans to provide curriculum assistance to participating schools to maximize the value of the solar installation as a teaching tool.

The cost of the solar systems will be partially subsidized by the Virginia Alliance for Solar Electricity (VASE), an industry/government partnership created to accelerate the deployment of PV systems produced in Virginia.
