REC Solar, a subsidinary of Duke Energy Renewables, has partnered with Pleasanton Unified School District (PUSD) in Pleasanton, California to utilize solar plus energy storage solutions that cut emissions and energy costs.

"Pleasanton Unified is a great example of US education market's increasing desire to tap on-site solar generation combined with energy storage," said Matt Walz, CEO REC Solar."By choosing solar plus storage, the district will further control costs under new Time of Use rates, reduce demand charges and cut emissions during peak hours when the electric grid is stressed by high demand."

REC Solar will install 1 megawatt (MW) of solar carports and a 660 kilowatt-hour (kWh) battery energy storage system at Pleasanton Unified's Amador Valley High School. The investment is projected to save the district more than $2.2 million over the 25-year lifetime of the Power Purchase Agreement (PPA), which will be financed by Duke Energy Renewables.

"Education services is the largest subsegment of C&I customers today," said Brett Simon senior storage analyst at Wood Mackenzie Power & Renewables. "School boards and universities make ideal customers for storage developers: They are willing to accept longer payback periods compared to private-sector customers, have multiple buildings to allow for many deployments from a single contract, and usually have needs for bill reduction and resilience."

"For many years it has been our goal to educate global citizens while focusing on projects that improve health and well-being of our students, staff and community," said David Haglund, Ed.D and PUSD Superintendent. "As cutting emissions is crucial to our global future, our project to install solar generation plus battery storage will benefit our students for decades."

PUSD is also re-configuring the parking lot at the school to maximize performance of the solar arrays while also enhancing the lot's accessibility and safety features. The new solar arrays will provide up to 97 percent of the high school's current energy use and greenhouse gas emissions elimination. Students will also have access to REC Solar's GreenPowerMonitor tool and data for hands-on learning opportunities.
