Konocti Unified celebrates flipping the switch on the new Solar System on Friday
At 2 p.m. Friday, the Konocti Unified School District (KUSD) invites the public to attend its Flip the Switch event, where school board members and Superintendent Becky Salato will activate the district’s new solar-powered electrical system. The event will take place at the District Office located at 9430B Lake St. in Lower Lake.
“At Konocti Unified, we are interested in building sustainable and resilient facilities,” Superintendent Salato said. “Using renewable solar energy reduces our expenses and allows us to devote resources to other student needs.”
Solar panels installed at four KUSD campuses provide electricity not only for these sites, but also for three other sites in the district. This is the first part of a two-part plan to install energy-efficient technologies as part of KUSD’s modernization plan. The district’s technical partner, Climatec, projects an 83% reduction in energy consumption and $20 million in general fund relief over the useful life of all equipment once the entire plan is complete. implemented.
The plan includes solar panels along with smart building automation technologies, LED lighting and modernized HVAC systems to reduce energy consumption and create optimal classrooms for the health and success of students and staff. . HVAC units incorporate state-of-the-art ventilation consisting of advanced MERV 13 filters and outdoor air economizers for better indoor air quality. Meanwhile, structural reinforcements, protective solar nets, and power resiliency through emergency power systems provide new independence from the PG&E power grid.
“Solar panels are a huge step forward for Konocti Unified, and this is just the beginning. We will continue to seek technologies and solutions that can improve our district,” Superintendent Salato said.
