LASD Solar Panels – Up They Go!


Dec 2017


By now you’re likely well aware that the Los Altos School District (LASD) is installing solar panels at all school sites.

Panels at Blach Intermediate School and Loyola Elementary are already up!

By the end of December, installation of panels at all the schools should be complete. (You may see some on the GreenTown Los Altos “Winter Solstice Bike Ride“.  The project will reduce the District’s carbon footprint significantly and generate electricity bill savings of more than $175,000 annually.

As part of the project, the contractor, ForeFront Power, will provide an online portal for students and staff to remotely monitor the solar production at each campus and provide energy curriculum materials and training to students and faculty. With GreenTown’s help, volunteers at each school are working hard to increase walking, biking and carpooling, reducing traffic and building new habits during construction and beyond.
