Clovis Unified School District Solar
Cupertino Electric solar energy engineering and construction project for the Clovis Unified School District in California's Central Valley.
Designed and constructed by Cupertino Electric, Inc. (CEI) and managed by energy advisory firm TerraVerde Renewable Partners (TVRP), 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 (4) phases, the 5.86 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 (kWh) per 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.
