Roseville Joint Union High School District celebrates new solar parking
May 23, 2019 for immediate release
Roseville Joint Union High School District (RJUHSD) is hosting a “Switch to Solar” celebration at 7:15 a.m. on May 23, 2019 at Granite Bay High School, 1 Grizzly Way, Granite Bay, California. The celebration marks the activation of 1.02 megawatt solar parking solution, constructed and maintained by REC Solar | Duke Energy Renewables, a national leader in US commercial renewable energy financing and zero-emissions solar and wind project development.
RJUHSD will install solar parking structures at the high school using California Energy Commission Prop 39 grants and Measure D bond funds. Over the next 25 years, the installations is expected to save the district more than $8 million dollars.
“We’ve seen a lot of scenarios while developing more than 100 schools solar projects and Roseville Joint Union is a great example of how to approach it right,” said Matt Walz, president and CEO of REC Solar, a Duke Energy Renewables Company. “The District leveraged an Independent analysis by a third party energy services expert to determine the best project and payback. In turn, students, staff and communities gain the additional health, comfort, and educational benefits solar parking structures create.”
