SunEdison has signed an agreement to install, monitor and manage a 1.8 MW solar power project for the Rosedale Union School District (RUSD) in Bakersfield, Calif.
Under terms of the agreement, SunEdison will install solar shade canopies in parking lots at the district's nine schools. The project will include approximately 5,000 SunEdison Silvantis photovoltaic modules. Once operational, the solar systems will be managed by the SunEdison Renewable Operation Center.
Scheduled for completion by the end of this year, the project is expected to save the RUSD over $2 million in energy costs over 20 years.
