Making Waves Academy

School | PV | Richmond, CA

Through Proposition 39, this charter school in Richmond, California, was able to realize its core values of responsibility and community by installing solar.

This PV system in is self-ballasted to reduce installation costs and increase annual kW production. Students will be able to access the web-based monitoring system as part of the science curriculum to examine the principles of electricity and how weather, as well as local climate, can affect system performance.

    Greenhouse gas equivalent = 319 Metric Tons, equivalent to:

    • 765,230 miles driven by an average car.
    •  739 barrels of oil consumed
    •  2.5 acres of U.S. Forests preserved from conversion to cropland in one year.
