SCHOTT Solar PV Inc. and Albuquerque, N.M.-based Consolidated Solar Technologies have inaugurated a 50 kW photovoltaic solar power system at Rio Rancho High School in New Mexico. The system, which comprises more than 200 Albuquerque-made SCHOTT POLY solar modules, will yield an energy savings of more than $20,000 annually for the school.
The project was funded through a grant system initiated in 2009 using funds from the American Recovery & Reinvestment Act. Rio Rancho High School is the third local school project on which SCHOTT Solar and CST have worked together to install a solar project.Rio Rancho students were crucial to securing the final grant by writing more than 75 letters to state officials, the companies note.
