We were really excited last week when our good client, Secure Futures, was out in Augusta County Public Schools (ACPS) to talk about the installation of a total of 1.8 megawatts of solar power across seven campuses. ACPS, with more than 5,000 solar panels deployed, is the largest solar energy system of any public school division in Virginia. Some excellent coverage of this initiative is here. Augusta County students created some great posters about how much they love solar and those are featured on the Secure Futures homepage.
Secure Futures’ partnership with ACPS meant the school division had no capital investment for this solar project. Additionally, and most importantly, they receive monthly savings on their utility bill by using the electricity generated by the solar panels. ACPS has a special webpage where you can look at their solar energy production in real time. Pretty cool!
