Clovis Unified School District is near the completion of a 5.86MW solar installation project in Clovis, Calif.
Scheduled to be completed January 2014, the project will include 21 solar power systems and generate about 8.4 million kWh annually.
Construction began in 2012 after voters in the district approved funding for the $25 million project.
The project is expected to save the Clovis Unified School District $2.7 million annually over the next 35 to 40 years. Currently the district spends about $7.5 million annually in energy costs.
The project was managed by TerraVerde Renewable Partners while Cupertino Electric designed and constructed the project, using Canadian Solar "CS6P" Mono-crystalline modules.
