Sunworks Inc., a provider of solar power solutions, has secured approximately $9.4 million in contracts with multiple cities and schools in northern California to establish long-term, cost-saving solar energy solutions. According to the company, these awards support Sunworks’ 2016 outlook for more than $100 million in annual revenues.
Sunworks secured a $3.4 million agreement with the City of West Sacramento, which has a population of approximately 50,000 and is located in Yolo County, to provide 943 kW of solar solutions across four sites, including carports and a water storage tank roof.
The company also secured a contract with Oroville Union High School District, located at the base of the Sierra Nevada foothills, about 70 miles north of Sacramento. The $2.66 million agreement for a 1 MW solar system will reduce energy costs for the school district so that financial resources can be deployed for other educational necessities.
The $1.26 million agreement with the Durham Unified School District calls for a 516 kW ground-mount solar array. The 46-acre campus encompasses four schools spanning elementary, intermediate, high school and alternative high school, as well as independent study programs. The district expects to save an estimated $13.6 million in energy costs.
The $1.2 million agreement with the Napa Valley Unified School District will provide single-axis trackers for carports. This school district serves the communities of American Canyon, Napa City and Yountville, comprising more than 30 schools with more than 18,000 students.
“We are pleased to announce these solar agreements designed to bring cost savings to the cities and schools – thus, California taxpayers – within the Sacramento region,” says Jim Nelson, CEO of Sunworks.
“These projects, and others like them, often require an extensive bidding process among competitive solar companies based throughout the country. We believe Sunworks’ high-profile work throughout the Sacramento and surrounding communities, as well as their clear demonstration of excellence and solar know-how, will continue to secure larger agreements with prominent municipalities, businesses and organizations,” Nelson says.
