Onyx Renewable Partners L.P., “Onyx”, announces the completion of a solar photovoltaic carport structure that will provide electricity to George W. Flamson Middle School. The school district has signed a 20-year Power Purchase Agreement.
Construction began in April of 2017 and was completed in a little under four 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 Paso Robles Joint Unified School District is very excited to see the beginnings of our long-term investments come to fruition, supporting the sustainability goals and initiatives of our county and state while also providing major cost savings to the district. Onyx has been a great project developer, we look forward to working with Onyx on further sustainability initiatives” Duane Wolgamott, Chief Business Officer.
Onyx has been working very hard to make sure the district will reach their future energy goals. “It is very important to expand our use of clean energy and make a long-term commitment to it, the efforts of the Paso Robles Joint Unified School District will be very beneficial to the environment and result in cost savings for the District, we look forward to working with them on other renewable energy projects in the future,” says Matt Rosenblum, CEO of Onyx.
