The Oakland Unified School District (OUSD) is putting 3.6MW of solar systems on 16 schools. The systems include rooftop solar arrays and solar shade structures in school parking lots, which take advantage of underutilized space and provide needed shade. Once the systems are completed in 2014, the district estimates it will reduce electricity costs at those facilities by 46%.
Sol Systems successfully finances a residential solar portfolio for SunPower. The investment will fund over a thousand solar energy systems for homeowners across the northeastern and southwestern United States. The SunPower portfolio marks Sol System's first tax equity transaction with a portfolio of residential solar energy systems.
