The Energy Alternatives Division of Cupertino Electric, Inc. today announced the completion of the first phase of a parking lot canopy and playground shade structure-based solar system for Clovis Unified School District spanning 21 sites and totaling 5.86 megawatts (MW). The first phase of the Clovis Unified solar photovoltaic system that is fully operational and generating power includes systems installed at Clovis Elementary School, Fugman Elementary School, Nelson Elementary School, Riverview Elementary School and Mountain View Elementary School, where a community event was held Friday.

Clovis Unified Solar System Specifics

Designed and constructed by Cupertino Electric and managed by energy advisory firm TerraVerde Renewable Partners, the Clovis Unified School District solar system spans twenty-one sites and is the largest school solar project in California’s Central Valley. Constructed in four phases, the 5.9 MW Clovis Unified solar system is anticipated to save the District $2.4 million annually when complete in December 2013 by generating roughly 8.4 million kilowatt-hours a year.

Each school in the Clovis Unified School District involved with the solar initiative will feature solar panels mounted on either parking lot canopies or playground shade structures. The solar systems in the District scheduled to come online next include those located at Clovis West High School, Fancher Creek Elementary School, Ft. Washington Elementary School, Pinedale Elementary School, Weldon Elementary School and a district professional development building.
