A Wave of Solar on Campuses Los Angeles Unified School District – Los Angeles, CA

With over 2,000 campuses, LAUSD is the largest school district in California. In 2010 it was authorized with bonding authority for solar systems on LAUSD schools. EcoMotion joined an “all-star” solar team to prepare a pragmatic solar strategy that included a screening system for site selection. This involved roof age, material and condition; interconnection requirements; bill offset based on a myriad of rate structures; shade and wind analysis; and balancing technical opportunities with impacting young students and their families with positive renewable energy messages. EcoMotion reviewed dozens of sites for the District, paving the way for 10 solar systems on LAUSD campuses.
