Hire SolarCity Corporation of San Mateo to install solar photovoltaic projects at Anna Kyle Elementary, Crystal Middle and Armijo, Fairfield and Rodriguez high schools, the Fairfield-Suisun School District staff recommends.
Photovoltaic parking and shade structures would be built at the five schools, states a report district trustees take up Thursday.
SolarCity would be hired using a power purchase agreement that requires the solar vendor to finance, build and maintain the solar panels, according to a staff report. The school district buys, at a flat rate, power generated by the panels.
