El Dorado School District (ESD) School Board and faculty members gathered to celebrate the district’s newly constructed 1.75-MWAC solar array. The project will offset 88% of the district’s energy usage and expenses, saving ESD over $128,000 annually in energy costs.
ESD entered into a Solar Services Agreement (SSA) with Entegrity, an energy efficiency and solar company headquartered in Little Rock, Arkansas. With an SSA, the district creates savings by purchasing renewable energy from Entegrity at a fixed price lower than their current electricity rate.
“We are extremely excited to see this project come to life. Thanks to the School Board’s support, this project will bring our schools significant cost savings over its lifetime and allow us to divert funds to support our students and their learning environment,” said Jim Tucker, superintendent of El Dorado School District.
ESD students will gain firsthand experience with the rapidly growing renewable energy industry, learning how solar energy positively impacts their everyday lives.
