ROSEVILLE, CA--(Marketwired - August 16, 2017) - Sunworks, Inc. (SUNW), a leading provider of solar power solutions for agriculture, commercial, industrial (ACI) and residential markets today announced a new 1.4 MW solar power construction project for nine elementary and middle school locations in the Los Altos School District (LASD). 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 will manage all of the engineering, procurement and construction for this project.
LASD will reduce their energy costs and establish a definitive, long term pricing structure that relieves the budget burdens schools often face when dealing with annual electricity expenses. Each school's solar parking canopy area will be integrated with solar panels, resulting in the production of enough energy to offset 1,476 metric tons of annual carbon dioxide emissions. All nine school lobbies will be fitted with a display monitor that will allow students, staff and visitors to view greenhouse gas savings in real-time.
Sunworks' Chief Executive Officer, Chuck Cargile said, "Together with ForeFront Power, Sunworks is excited to help LASD optimize their energy costs and establish a more accurate, monthly power payment schedule. The savings realized 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, "This represents our largest public works project to date. We are confident that our relationship with ForeFront will lead to additional public works projects this year and advance our efforts to expand our presence in this large and growing market."
ForeFront Power selected Sunworks as the prime engineering, procurement and construction, (EPC), contractor based on Sunworks' proven record of superiority and unmatched experience in commercial and industrial solar project installation, as well as an exceptional track record in the California public sector. Both Sunworks and ForeFront Power are eager to promote the adoption of solar power as a way to help school districts achieve maximum energy savings and find environmentally-friendly energy solutions.
