Mukwonago School District is reducing both their energy costs and their carbon footprint through a solar project made possible thanks to a grant from DSIRE Energy Innovation Grand Program and the Public Service Commission of Wisconsin’s Office of Energy Innovation. After a competitive selection process, the District selected Performance Services to complete the project at their recently renovated high school. The 300 kWac solar arrays will generate 471,000 kilowatt hours of renewable energy each year and will save an estimated $41,000 in energy costs in the first year of operation. The addition of solar power is expected to save $1.8 million in energy costs over the next 30 years. In addition, students will be able to analyze the energy production data from the solar array in the classroom through a STEM-supported solar education component made available through a grant from Performance Services. The project is expected to be complete by fall 2019.
