Washoe County Elementary is Turning Sunshine into Computers
Last year, Washoe County Elementary spent approximately $12,000+ on 24 HP laptop computers. Now, they have installed solar panels and saving on energy. Therefore, Washoe County Elementary has saved approximately $16,000 over the course of two years since they installed solar panels. Around 25% of those savings go toward maintaining the system, whilst the school keeps the rest.
The district is currently meeting 12% of its energy consumption from solar installations at 35 schools.
