Ontario, CA, August 23, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- Onyx Renewable Partners L.P. ("Onyx"), a leader in the development and finance of commercial and industrial (“C&I”) and small scale utility solar projects in North American markets, today announced the completion of nine solar projects on Ontario-Montclair schools.
The carports – located at Oaks Middle, Mariposa Elementary, Vernon Middle, De Anza Middle, Serrano Middle, Wiltsey Middle, Berlyn Elementary, Lehigh Elementary, and Vineyard STEM Schools – total almost two megawatts (2 MWDC). Onyx completed construction six months after the PPA was signed.
Craig Miso, Director, Facilities Planning & Operations for the Ontario-Montclair School District, said, “With the expected energy savings, the Ontario-Montclair School District will be able to allocate more resources toward student curriculum and facilities, providing a better, more sustainable service to the community.”
The nine projects are expected to generate 3,204,122 kWh/year. That is equivalent to the CO2 emissions from 2,402,863 pounds of coal burned; or the carbon sequestered by 2,132 acres of U.S. forests in one year. “Partnering with Ontario-Montclair School District to build solar installations that help improve education in the Ontario local community, while reducing global CO2 emissions, is the perfect fit for Onyx’s double bottom line strategy,” said Onyx CEO, Matthew Rosenblum.
