Sunworks Celebrates Completion Of 1.4 MW Solar Project

Project Included Nine Solar Canopy Systems for Los Altos School District in Partnership with ForeFront Power

Sunworks, Inc., a leading provider of solar power solutions for agriculture, commercial, industrial, public works and residential markets today celebrated the completion of a 1.4 MW solar power project encompassing nine Los Altos School District campuses.

Sunworks was contracted by ForeFront Power, a leading solar power developer that assists public sector agencies by delivering the most impactful behind-the-meter, virtual, and wholesale renewable energy solutions. Sunworks' dedicated, in-house construction team managed engineering, procurement and construction for this project. Today's ceremony at Oak Avenue Elementary School also included TerraVerde Energy, the District's procurement consultant, as well as representatives from the local school council.

Sunworks' Chief Executive Officer, Chuck Cargile said, "We are proud to have been the EPC solutions provider for this exciting solar project. The savings in utility costs at each of the nine locations will allow for funds to be redirected to advance educational program initiatives that directly benefit the students. In addition, the positive results help tomorrow's generation understand the positive impact that sustainable energy has on our environment."

Mr. Cargile added, "We originally announced the commencement of this ground-breaking project in August of 2017. At that time, we identified it as our largest public works program to-date. We have since won a number of projects even larger than the important LASD project, for school customers across California. Our valuable partnership with ForeFront Power is providing us the opportunity to expand upon our proven record of superiority and unmatched experience in complex solar project installation."

LASD is receiving solar energy at no upfront cost and without the use of bond funds using a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) framework with ForeFront Power. ForeFront Power is responsible for all project financing, engineering, construction, operations, and maintenance for a 20-year project term. As a result, the solar portfolio is expected to save the District over $175,000 annually and up to $2.7 million within the first ten years of operation.
