Soltage, a nationwide renewable-energy provider, announced the completion of three solar projects for the Grossmont Union High School District, totaling 3.2 MW. The three systems together will produce nearly 5 million kilowatt-hours (kWh) of energy per year.

These projects were developed utilizing a combination of car-port and ground mounted solar arrays and worked within the dense construction footprint of Southern California to maximize the size of the solar arrays which serve the Granite Hills High School, Steele Canyon High School and the Helix Charter High School.  Each of the solar arrays provides enough electricity to offset 95% of each school's energy needs on an annual basis.

"Soltage prides itself on meeting the needs of our education sector customers.  We look to implement solar projects designed so that our educational clients can save significant capital on their power costs, and focus those dollars back on their primary job of educating the next generation," said Jesse Grossman, Soltage CEO.

"The Grossmont Union High School District has always looked to both be fiscally responsible while at the same time environmentally conscious," said Dr. Tim Glover, the Superintendent for the Grossmont Union High School.

"Solar is our way forward to the future," said Lindsey Danner, Aquatics/Energy Manager for Grossmont Union High School District. "Not only is the executive team on board with these innovations, but our students are, too."

These solar systems, which are now operational, are projected to save the school district over $20 million in electricity costs over the 25 years of the PPA.  Combined, the power produced by these solar systems removes the equivalent CO2levels of more than 4 million pounds of coal burned or 418,711 gallons of gasoline.

The projects were funded by Soltage as part of a recent investment into their capital vehicle raised with Basalt Infrastructure. Construction was performed on these solar projects by Baker Electric.
