UPC Solar to Provide 1.7 MW for School District

UPC Solar has announced that it has reached an agreement with the Jefferson Union High School District (JUHSD), located in the San Francisco Bay Area, to install a total capacity of 1.7 megawatts (MW) of solar photovoltaic (PV) systems at the districts five high schools.

The project will be designed, installed, owned and operated by UPC Solar under a long-term power purchase agreement (PPA) with JUHSD. The systems will provide up to 85 percent of each of the school’s electricity needs.

“Without a business model like the one offered by UPC Solar, JUHSD would not have even entertained the though of powering the entire district with solar energy,” said Steve Fuentes, associate Superintendent of business services for JUHSD. “The cost would have been completely beyond our reach.”
