Ansonia Local Schools signed a Power Purchase Agreement with Sunlight Power, LLC in November 2011. This agreement incorporated a 486 KW solar array on the roof of our K - 12 facility at no cost to the district. The project incorporated almost 2,000 solar panels and twenty miles of wiring to complete the project. The agreement provides for a fixed electric price to Sunlight Power to be adjusted every five years. The agreement will provide the opportunity for students to learn of renewable energy through a Solar Education Center, provided by Sunlight Power. The district has reduced the demand charge, prior to the project from 600 to now at 400. The use of solar power and the reduction in our demand charge has resulted in an annual savings of $50,000 per year the last five years.
The below link will show the amount of solar energy produced from this project.
