Sacramento, CA

Valley Solar installed a 1,316 panel, 309 KW rooftop solar system for Saint Francis High School of Sacramento. The solar system will generate 30.6% of the school’s current electricity requirements, will save over $1 million in energy costs over the next 20 years, and was cash flow positive in its first year of operation. The project was partially funded through a US Treasury Grant, SMUD rebates, and reductions in electric bills. It is the second largest school solar installation in SMUD’s service territory (the largest being Jesuit High School, whose solar system was also installed by Valley Solar). The foresight and environmental awareness of Saint Francis High School’s partnership with Valley Solar prompted Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson to say the following at the Sacramento State of the City Address: “Congratulations to the Saint Francis community, SMUD, and Valley Solar. Your collaboration is a perfect example of how an investment in solar makes great business sense for a property owner, creates green jobs, and improves our environment."
