Kyocera Installs Solar at Phoenix Schools

Kyocera Installs 2 Solar Systems at Phoenix Schools

Kyocera Solar has completed the installation of solar electric systems in two Phoenix, Arizona schools: Copper Ridge in Scottsdale and Cholla Elementary in Casa Grande. The solar arrays were installed in partnership with SolarCity and featured Kyocera solar modules. Combined, the two solar systems will produce 764 kilowatts (kW) of electricity.

The Copper Ridge School’s solar system is comprised of 2,387 Kyocera KD210 modules creating 500 kW of power. This is expected to produce 775,992 Kilowatt hours (kWh) each year and offset approximately 47 percent of the school’s energy usage. The school was able to add solar power in part through a solar service agreement (SSA) which helps to offset some of the initial costs of the system, while still being able to reap immediate cost savings to their electricity bills.
