Sunny Days Expected at School District
IUSD worked with SunEdison in one of the largest agreements between a public-school system and energy company ever. The district is expected to finalize the agreement today.
The district won't pay any of the initial installation costs and will receive a huge discount on energy fees. The solar panels will lower carbon emissions by 127 million pounds in the first year, the equivalent of removing 1,200 cars from the roads. Also, an educational program will be created to teach students about the benefits of solar power.
