Read our case study on page 20 of the Brighter Future Report here: https://generation180.org/brighter-future-2020/ More than 47,000 students enjoy an up-close view of renewable energy at work at Tucson Unified School District (TUSD). The largest of its kind among K-12 school districts in Arizona, the project delivers solar energy to 80 schools and reduces carbon dioxide emissions by 38.7 million pounds per year. The district has been recognized as the top green power user among K-12 schools in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Green Power Partnership, and it received the Governor’s Award for Energy & Technology Innovation. TUSD paid nothing upfront for the system, and it projects energy cost savings of up to $43 million over 20 years. The three-phase project was financed through third-party power purchase agreements (also known as solar services agreements) with Constellation. The district will purchase the clean energy produced by the solar panels for 20 years at a fixed rate below what the utility charges.
