Over the past two years Covina-Valley has done remarkable work in reducing it’s water usage through the installation of artificial turf. We are now embarking on a new way for our District to save money and be environmentally responsible. This summer, thirteen of our sites in Covina-Valley will have solar panel structures installed. These sites include Cypress, Grovecenter, Lark Ellen, Merwin, and Mesa Elementary; Las Palmas, Sierra Vista, and Traweek Middle; and Covina, Fairvalley, Northview, and South Hills High Schools; and the Trade-Tech Academy. Through installation of these solar structures, it is estimated that C-VUSD will save $333,387 in electricity charges in the first year of full implementation and potentially $15,251,000 over the next 20 years.
In addition to saving money on electricity costs for the District, these solar panel structures will have a variety of other benefits for our students, staff, and community. At several sites, the solar panels will provide cover and additional lighting for student and staff parking areas. Others sites will benefit from the structures providing shaded areas for students during break and lunches. At several of the high school sites, the solar panels will provide shade for students, staff and community members who attend outdoor sporting events.
