Solar panels under construction at schools

PRESS RELEASE

The Cabrillo Unified School District is pleased to announce the District’s solar power projects are now under construction. Solar panel arrays are being installed at both Half Moon Bay High School and at Cunha Intermediate School. The projects are in partnership with Solar City and are not part of the Measure S Facility Bond Program.

The solar project is fully funded by Solar City and they will own, operate, and provide all maintenance for the arrays and related components. The District will purchase the electrical power generated by the systems from Solar City at rates set at below market projections over the duration of the agreement. The Cabrillo Unified School District Governing Board approved the power purchase agreements with Solar City on May 10, 2012.

The solar arrays will be mounted on canopies covering portions of the parking lots at each campus. The canopies will be located in the upper student parking lot, as well as the lot nearest the softball complex at the high school. The main staff parking lot at the intermediate school will also house the canopies. Together, the solar systems will generate about 525 KW.
