Solar shades for California school district


California solar company Cupertino Electric has connected the first 6 MW phase of a project to build solar parking lot canopies and playground shades at 21 elementary school sites.

Cupertino is designing and building the solar structures across the Clovis school district in California.

With the whole project set to be finished in December, the Cupertino scheme will generate an estimated 8.4 million kWh per year for Clovis, Fugman, Nelson, Riverview and Mountain View elementary schools across the district.

The projects will be managed by TerraVerde Renewable Partners.
