Rosedale Schools Save $55,000 Per Year

June 9, 2014 By Linda Hardesty

SunEdison energy manageSunEdison struck a partnership with Rosedale Union School District in Bakersfield, Calif., to install, monitor and manage 1.8 MW of solar at the district’s nine schools. The solar energy and efficiency project is expected to save the district about $55,000 in year one and more than $2 million in energy costs over 20 years.

Solar shade canopies will be constructed in parking lots at the district’s schools. SunEdison will install, monitor and maintain the solar system at no additional expense to the district.

Nearly 5,000 SunEdison Silvantis modules will be installed as part of this project scheduled to begin this summer and be completed by the end of 2014. Once operational, the solar system will be managed by the SunEdison Renewable Operation Center.
