Roughly 905 kilowatts of solar power will provide energy at six school buildings within the district.

The Teaneck (N.J.) district has completed installation of 905 kilowatts of solar panels at multiple schools. 

According to project officials, the project consisted of installing rooftop solar arrays at six school buildings, reports roi-nj.com

Project officials say the arrays generate enough renewable power to offset a year's worth of emissions from 2,400 cars.

Locations and individual system sizes include

  • Teaneck High School: a 119 kW DC array;
  • Theodora Smiley Lacey School: a 110 kW DC array;
  • Thomas Jefferson Middle School: a 265 kW DC array;
  • Whittier Elementary School: a 125 kW DC array;
  • New administration building: a 103 kW DC array;
  • Lowell Elementary School: a 114 kW DC array.

The project was completed under a solar power purchase agreement that enabled the district to achieve financial benefits of renewable energy immediately while eliminating upfront expenditures and outsourcing operation and maintenance costs over a specified period.
