Rio Rancho Public Schools in New Mexico have deployed 2.36 MW of solar arrays in two ground-mounted arrays at Cleveland and Rio Rancho high schools. The project was developed by AMSOLAR and constructed by Conergy, which also supplied the equipment for both schools.
Each system consists of more than 4,000 solar panels. The expected annual output of 4.65 GWh of electricity per year will produce approximately 80% of the power demand from the schools. Washington Gas Energy Systems will own and operate the systems under a 20-year power purchase agreement.
