Schools & colleges can offset rising energy costs with on-campus solar panel projects

Schools districts, community colleges, and universities can all add savings to their general funds through onsite solar & energy storage. Beyond the financial benefits, installing solar panel projects and energy storage systems on school campuses shows the next generation that clean energy and sustainability are solutions that can be implemented now.

With Borrego Solar, educational institutions get a consultative, reliable partner that provides turnkey service, minimizes disruptions to operations, and provides an industry leading production guarantee. We have decades of experience working with state school permitting authorities and helping our education customers maximize their return on solar and energy storage investments. We excel at multi-site projects and DSA-approved solar carports.

“Since the beginning, Borrego has been really clear in their communication with us. They’ve done an excellent job of explaining the whole process of how a power purchase agreement works, and also how we move forward in the process—from design to construction to completion. They’ve been a really easy partner to work with.”
Brian Webb, Sustainability Coordinator, Houghton College

Educational institutions with large, spikey energy demand can benefit from onsite energy storage — saving on utility bills through demand charge reduction and time of use arbitrage, as well as state incentives geared at energy storage installation. With extensive experience designing and building distributed energy for schools, we have systems and processes that offer the best value for our customers.

Energy Storage Systems

Borrego Solar designs and builds a wide variety of solar panels systems for schools & colleges, from roof-mounted panels on large buildings and ground-mounted solar on unused areas of land on campus, to DSA-approved solar carports that do double duty as shade protection for play areas and parking lots.
