SOLAR PANEL UPDATES


226 Solar panels on the school roof.  Installed by Ailey Solar.

Using renewable energy will not only save on electric bills, but is a benefit for the nearby community as well. Installing solar will help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and global warming. Rooftop solar will also promote the use of renewable energy in the immediate neighborhood.

The presence of solar panels should ignite student and parent interest in clean energy. This addition will also create real opportunities for learning and teaching.

226 panels with estimated annual production of 119,881 kWh went online Jan 5, 2023

Total cost of project: $171,248.00

TOTAL DONATIONS AS OF January 14, 2024:

$59,502.00


St. Paul received a $27,580.70 check on April 19th, 2023 from ComEd DG Grant towards the cost of solar panels installed in January.


Initial SREC payment of $7457.64 received December 16th, 2023.


$97,000 over the next 6 years will also be received as Solar Renewable Energy Credits (SREC) from the Illinois Shines program.

This amount is based on the amount of solar energy our system produces over 15 years.
