Project Description

Project / Program Description

South Lake Tahoe committed in April, 2017 to a goal of powering 100% of its electricity use from renewable sources.  As a first step toward realizing this larger goal, the Tahoe Solar Schools project will work with Liberty Utilities, the Lake Tahoe Unified School District, Lake Tahoe Community College, and the City of South Lake Tahoe to build an offsite community solar array sized to offset a significant portion of the electricity use of the school district and community college. Technical assistance from the Community Solar Challenge will help project partners design the community solar program, which will pave the way for additional community solar projects in the Liberty Utilities service area, as well as in other school districts.
