San Carlos is Going Solar

The San Carlos School District is going solar with construction starting this summer 2018. Photovoltaic solar will be installed on all schools in the form of a roof mounted system, a ground mounted shade structure or a combination of the two. Across the district the multiple systems will combine to a 870 kilowatt capacity which will save the District $3.5 million over 25 years and offset 100% of its energy consumption.  


This summer 2018 construction will begin on three ground mounted structures at Arundel Elementary, Central Middle School, and Heather Elementary. The tentative schedule for those schools is as follows:

Roof mounted solar will be installed at Arroyo, Central, Brittan Acres, Tierra Linda, Mariposa and White Oaks pending DSA approval. We expect to receive approval in mid-June which will allow for installation to occur this summer. A timeline for these schools will be provided once DSA approval is granted and a schedule is confirmed.
