Onyx Renewable Partners L.P., “Onyx”, announces the completion of construction of a solar photovoltaic ground-mounted system that will provide 362.805 kWDC of electricity to Zephyr Lane Elementary School. The system was constructed on Fairfax School District, Zephyr Lane Elementary School property. The system will produce 750,643 kWh in the first full year of operation, the CO2 reduction will be 8,924 tons, equal to taking 1,879 vehicles off the road over the 20 years the system will be in place. The school district has signed a 20-year Power Purchase Agreement.
Construction began in March of 2017 and was completed in a little under five months in August of 2017, using sub-contractors based in California. The system was approved to operate by PG&E and is now energized. The school district will benefit from the reduced cost of the electricity as California has been switching to peak-demand electricity pricing as of 2017.
“The Fairfax Unified School District is pleased to have worked with Onyx for our renewable energy initiatives. Onyx has been a great project developer and has ensured the highest quality and efficiency in all areas of the project. We look forward to working with Onyx in the future.” says Michael Coleman, Superintendent, Fairfax School District.
Onyx applauds The School District in working towards a more sustainable, cleaner environment, and has been working very hard to make sure The School District will reach their future energy goals seamlessly. “We are excited to support the Fairfax Unified School District in their pursuit of a more sustainable energy future, and look forward to partnering on future projects together” says Matt Rosenblum, CEO of Onyx.
